Proposed Improvements

Implemented in 2009, the pedestrian plazas at Herald and Greeley Squares remain lively. However, they face new challenges. The interim materials are showing the wear after years of use.

The bike connection through Herald Square across Sixth Avenue is complicated and causes conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians. Cyclists and pedestrians compete for space while the space is not clearly designated.

Broadway between 32nd and 33rd has low vehicle volumes, while the adjacent sidewalks are overflowing with pedestrians.

Suggested improvements include public space enhancements, strengthening bike connections, and reopening 33rd Street to vehicular traffic.
