Pedestrian Plazas Coming to Broadway

Community Board 1 recently approved a proposal by the Department of Transportation to create a new pedestrian plaza at Broadway and Bedford. The plaza would be located on the little triangle that is created where South 6th Street branches off from Broadway. “This is one of the areas with the least open space in all of Brooklyn,” said board member Jason Otano. “Even though it’s not a patch of grass, it will provide people places to congregate.”
