More NYC streets will be car free, similar to the Meatpacking District starting today!
Head to Broadway between 25th Street and 27th Street and explore the new NoMad Piazza Pop Up thanks to the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership, the American Institute of Architects, New York (AIANY), and the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT).
This seasonal space is reflective of “Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership’s long-term vision of a pedestrian-focused Broadway corridor through Flatiron and NoMad,” and is part of the DOT’s Broadway Vision set on enhancing pedestrian safety, increasing public space, and improving accessibility on Broadway between Columbus Circle and Union Square.
Adding to the city’s Open Streets Program, motor vehicle traffic will be prohibited on the Piazza for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Made to compliment the incredible outdoor dining scene in the area, the Piazza will feature public seating, tables, trees, planters, and granite blocks that will construct the pedestrian intersection entrances.
“This is another wonderful addition to what is becoming the heart of Open Streets along Broadway in Manhattan,” said DOT Commissioner Hank Gutman. “Our fellow New Yorkers are embracing these new open spaces, which are helping to support the restaurant industry while also getting folks out of their cars.
The pop-up space can be enjoyed through the month of November.
