BQE Mural Unveiled; How to Revive the Garment District

New, 5 comments

CLINTON HILL?For anyone not spending the weekend at Open House New York, how about a little public art? Head under the BQE at Park Avenue between Steuben and Grand on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 for the dedication of "Soundwaves," a community mural created by artist Ellie Baik and a bunch of community members.

GARMENT DISTRICT?The city backed away from a plan to rezone the Garment District, but maybe it acted hastily, says the Municipal Art Society in a new report on the nabe. A rezoning could generate higher tax revenues, which would then finance more manufacturing space, the report argues. Another recommendation: jazz up the streetscape so it can better compete with MePa. [CurbedWire Inbox]
