Broadway, NYC


2015 to 2016


Development of strategies to make the Broadway corridor in Manhattan from Madison Square Park to Union Square park more pedestrian oriented and safe. This would also enhance economic development


Numerous residual spaces exist along the Broadway corridor that might be developed to encourage more pedestrian activity and create safer urban areas.


A report has been developed and delivered to the NYC Department of Transportation and the Flatiron Business District director for use and consideration relative to making temporary pedestrian areas permanent.


This work would affect the social and public spaces in this district by making them pedestrian oriented and environmentally safe. This would impact over 50,000 people a day that visit the Flatiron BID alone. These new public areas would potentially generate more economic activity in the area.
