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." Thanks again, Brooklyn Bridge Park!
