Finally, a Piazza in Dumbo!

We certainly love a good piazza, so were were cheered to see the following rendering in all its splendor on Streets Blog. The plan to turn the Pearl Street Triangle in Dumbo into a public plaza comes from the Department of Transportation. The Triangle has a lot of potential to be a pretty and nice public space, as opposed to serving as a small parking lot. According to Streets Blog, the plan evolved from a study done by graduate students from the Pratt Institute. The piazza will be local Business Improvement District. There’s complete coverage of the plan in the Fort Greene Courier.
