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)
