Project Overview

Welcome to DOT’s portal for the Re-imagining Park Avenue project. The City of New York and the MTA Metro-North Railroad is embarking on a multi-year project to rehabilitate and repair the 100+ year old Grand Central Terminal Train Shed. As part of this project, the medians along Park Avenue between Grand Central and East 57th Street will need to be reconstructed, and we want your input on what you’d like to see when the medians are re-built following construction.

This project portal offers some background of the project area, and showcases the different design options and potential features for the malls. Please use the left-hand bar to navigate through the different pages.

After you’ve viewed this site, please visit our survey link to tell us what you’d like to see along Park Avenue. Your feedback will kick-off a multi-year process led by the City of New York to help inform the re-design of the iconic Park Avenue malls.

Greater East Midtown rezoning EIS calls for increased public space within the rezoning boundary.  Park Avenue from 46th St to 57th St was identified as a prime corridor for expansion of public space.  Over the next decade, portions of Park Avenue will be reconstructed as part of the Grand Central Terminal Train Shed Reconstruction Project.
