Broadway Vision

NYC DOT’s Broadway Vision program, from Union Square to Columbus Circle, offers a variety of design elements that can be implemented based on community and stakeholder input, including public plazas and seating areas, bike lanes, greenery, shared spaces, and traffic calming elements. These designs include the Base Block, Slow Block, Shared Block, and full Plaza Block options.

Mayor Eric Adams and DOT Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez kicked off construction on a new phase of the administration’s Broadway Vision plan on March 12, 2023 by announcing new public spaces and safer street designs between Madison Square and Herald Square. This phase will deliver two new plaza blocks from 25th Street to 27th Street, five blocks of shared streets, and a two-way bike lane on Broadway from 25th Street to 32nd Street (Greeley Square) this spring. The subsequent phase will deliver permanent capital improvements along Broadway from West 21st Street to West 33rd Street, including the permanent reconstruction of the Flatiron Public Plazas and Worth Square.

This next phase complements previous Broadway Vision projects in Flatiron. In summer 2021, DOT installed a slow/shared street on Broadway from 21st to 23rd Street after years of close consultation with local businesses, residents, our organization, and community stakeholders. This increased pedestrian space, created two new public seating areas at 22nd Street, and calmed traffic while maintaining access for commercial deliveries and taxis/rideshare. Manhattan’s first Shared Street, on Broadway from 24th to 25th Street, was unveiled in 2017, and the iconic Flatiron Public Plazas were created by repurposing excess road space in 2008.
