As many of us have heard, whether you agree or not, a pedestrian plaza will be constructed on Myrtle Avenue, reshaping about a thousand feet of street, or four short blocks, between Hall Street and Emerson Place.
What would you like to see on the pedestrian plaza? I know I’d like to see vehicle barriers, for starters. Of course, using large potted plants as barriers would really jazz it up.
Would you want it to look anything like the Herald Square Pedestrian Mall Plaza? I’ve been there a couple of times now, and I can say we really enjoyed taking a pit stop at a table, having lunch at that same table while people watching, and then getting back on our way. I’d certainly like to see numerous tables and chairs on the Myrtle Avenue Pedestrian Plaza too!
