A few years ago, MARP partnered with Project for Public Spaces to analyze a few places along the avenue in need of community feedback. Community members were invited to participate and work together on potential solutions. One of these spaces -- the service road on Myrtle Ave between Grand and Emerson -- was recently selected as a NYC Plaza Program site. The program, run by the NYC DOT, aims to assure that every New Yorker is within a 10-minute walk of quality open space. The DOT funds planning and construction of chosen sites. Congrats to them, and I look forward to seeing what's in store!
