Lower Manhattan Redevelopment
Pike and Allen Street Malls
Allen Street between Delancey and Hester Streets and Pike Street between Madison and South Streets
The Pike and Allen Street Malls will provide a unique pedestrian park promenade and serve as a linear community park linking the adjacent Lower East Side, Two Bridges, and Chinatown neighborhoods to the East River. The proposed design creates a greenway corridor with a central pedestrian path, linked at various intersections by NYCDOT–designated plaza connectors. The park will include seating and planting to provide publicly accessible green space. The width of the existing center plots will be expanded to accommodate bike lanes, which will be integrated into the park edge and buffered by planted medians.
Project Status: Scheduled to be completed in spring 2012.
