Delancey Street Gets Safety Improvements; High Line Zoo

LOWER EAST SIDE?The Department of Transportation has started safety improvements along Delancey Street, one of the city's most dangerous corridors, in the Lower East Side. Changes include "shortening of 14 pedestrian crossings; lengthened crossing time at Delancey and Clinton Streets; improved street markings; a new painted pedestrian plaza between Clinton and Norfolk Streets aimed at calming vehicular traffic and improving the approach to the Williamsburg Bridge; and enhanced traffic patterns throughout the corridor."

CHELSEA?A rooftop along the High Line has been transformed into a glow-in-the-dark art installation dubbed "the High Line Zoo." Created by three artists, the playful public artwork brings a collection of 2D animals, including a giraffe, lion, elephant, and monkeys, to the elevated park. The zoo will be up through the summer, and there will be performances on the third Thursday of every month. [Curbedwire Inbox; Official]
