The good news: The City is creating a park in response to the local community’s requests for more public space. This Dyer Ave. triangle is only a small part of the larger project. Read about it on Streetsblog.
The bad news: When people said they wanted more parks and green space, I don’t think they’re referring to a square of asphalt covered by a green outdoor carpet with a few potted plants in the middle of Lincoln Tunnel traffic. I’m just sayin’.
In all fairness, this is just the first segment of a larger project that will include various strips of land on Dyer Avenue according to Mathew Katz on DNAInfo.com.
“The area will soon undergo a larger transformation into Dyer Avenue Park — which will include a strip on the east side of Dyer Avenue between West 34th and West 35th streets, expected to open in 2016, and a canoe-shaped section of West 36th Street between Ninth and Dyer Avenues, expected to open in June.”
