FiDi's Water Street Hopes to Look More Like Park Avenue

New, 11 comments

Maybe FiDI's Water Street has been looking a little dingy and empty lately after the gradual makeover of much of the rest of the 'hood. But now it's Water Street's turn to look less like every other downtown in America. The Alliance for Downtown New York has announced plans for a Water Street redo, the Times reports. There are two major goals: make Water Street look more like Park Avenue, complete with planted median, and redesign the street's public spaces so people will leave their offices once in a while, and maybe even play laser tag hang out there at night. Can't quite picture it? Take a look at the renderings above.
