We are thrilled that NYC DOT will make some major improvements in DUMBO this summer! Our neighborhood streets desperately need these changes. DUMBO BID summarizes the plan on its blog; here's a summary. Check out DOT's full presentation (from a recent Community Board 2 meeting) here. Streetsblog as always has excellent coverage.We hope this is just the beginning. Got ideas for further improvements? Share them in the comments.
York St & Washington St: Build concrete sidewalk extension on southeast. Mark parking lanes and bike route. Potentially add parking to the south curb. Front St & Pearl St: Concrete neckdown at southeast corner. New granite paver crosswalk across Pearl St. York St & Pearl St: Extended sidewalk space and creation of pedestrian island. New granite paver crosswalks across York St. Jay St & Prospect St:Large concrete curb extensions and neckdowns. New Crosswalk across Jay St. Two-way bike lane between Prospect and York and improved bike facilities between York and John St. (these elements are part of the Jay Street Corridor re-imagining project)
