Broadway, NYC

Date: 

2015 to 2016

Summary: 

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

Issue: 

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

Response: 

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.

Impact: 

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.
