As you may have seen, the pedestrian plaza has received temporary street furniture. The blue tables/seats will allow residents and visitors to use the plaza while a more detailed plan is developed. Please stay tuned with NYC DOT and your local elected officials regarding planning and development for the next phase of the pedestrian plaza – coming in Spring 2012.
While the majority of improvements have been implemented, the Commercial Delivery plan is still upcoming in November and will primarily affect 37th Avenue, Roosevelt Avenue, 73rd, 74th, 75th, 76th and 82nd Streets.
NYC DOT will soon be posting a detailed monitoring program (including evaluation metrics such as vehicle speed, pedestrian and bicycle volumes, resident and merchant questionnaires) to this Portal website for comment.
