A Bigger Better Broadway
Eight years ago, the City of New York closed half of Broadway in our neighborhood to traffic, giving us five plazas of much needed public space. This summer, two of our Garment District plazas will greatly increase in size when the NYC DOT closes them completely to traffic, bringing us Garment District Urban Garden.
Broadway between 39th and 40th Streets, and between 36th and 37th Streets, will be car-free super plazas featuring our UrbanSpace Garment District food market, community fueled art by Steed Taylor, increased seating and plantings(including trees!), and the return of the popular "grass" from last summer.
