DOT Plans to Give BBP Pier 1 Approach Some Room to Breathe
June 29, 2011, by Bilal Khan
As more pedestrian traffic comes to Old Fulton Street —the primary entry into Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 1— the DOT has revealed plans to make the area more friendly to non-motorists. It even looks like pedestrians should have an easier time avoiding the snake-like line pouring out of Grimaldi's. According to Streetsblog, the plan "calls for a new pedestrian plaza, treatments to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists crossing highway exits, and a concrete median intended to prevent illegal parking and bus drop-offs in the middle of Old Fulton Street."
