Out With the Old Sidewalk, In With the New On Fulton Street, Downtown Brooklyn

These workers are ripping out the old brick sidewalks on Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn and replacing them with standard cement.

The work is part of the ongoing $15 million Fulton Streetscape Project which includes 67 new trees, new benches, bus shelters, bicycle racks, and streetlights and the creation of a public square outside the domed Dime Savings Bank building.

Construction started in May 2009 and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2011, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.
