It looks so bare now, after several years of planters, street furniture, and the friendly fruit and hot dog stands. But the planned plaza, a project of DOT and the MetroTech BID, will have a new surface, landscaping, turf restoration, outdoor seating, new drainage and a water fountain.
According to MetroTech BID, the success of the “test” plaza lead to an allocation of two million dollars to make it permanent, and the creation of DOT’s city-wide Plaza Program, now popping up all over the five boroughs. DOT is accepting applications to work with selected not-for-profit organizations to create neighborhood plazas throughout the City. Information sessions take place throughout May.
Are you wondering where they put the cement planters, blue metal tables and umbrellas that were in the Adams Street Service Road?
