The garden offers additional space for pedestrians and cyclists in Midtown
The installation invites the public to create their own light show.
The rezoning relaxes a 1987 rule that required landlords to lease space in the buildings to fashion industry tenants.

A new interactive public art installation is getting ready to make its way to Midtown’s Garment District.
Just 4 percent of area employment is in the garment manufacturing industry, a report commissioned by the business improvement district finds.
A survey from earlier this week showed that many in the industry felt it would be a disastrous move to shift the base of the garment industry to Sunset Park.
Garment manufacturers in the district think moving its central hub to Sunset Park would be disastorous for the industry.
The preliminary proposal comes on the heels of the announcement of a new 200,000-square-foot manufacturing hub in Sunset Park.
The Hyatt Place hotel on West 39th Street, developed by Sam Chang, will hold 518 rooms.
Just south of Times Square, a five-block stretch of open space along Broadway will become a permanent pedestrian plaza. When completed, it'll have space for art, public programming, and general leisure.
