Reply to "Noun Phrase"

Thanks, that makes things a lot clearer for me. 

I also agree that in 9' it makes sense to move "organizing..." to the front. However, would it also be possible like this: 

9''. A popular spot for the youth, organizing a wide range of activities throughout the year, the community center is a great place to hang out.

--> Could "organizing a wide range of activities throughout the year" here be seen as a reduced non-restrictive relative clause that postmodifies "A popular spot for the youth"?  

11: The house is only a 5 minute bike ride from the school.  

--> I would say "only a 5 minute bike ride from the school" is one NP? Is that right?

 

And is there a difference between postmodifiers and complements? e.g.:

12: It is the dream of my father to travel to China. 

--> Is it right that "of my father to travel to China" is a complement instead of a postmodifier? Or are complements a type of postmodifiers?
