8/30/16 - Penn Plaza / Station Public Space w/ 34th Street Partnership



Plaza 33, a pilot project open until Oct. 11, temporarily closes off 33rd Street between Seventh Avenue and Madison Square Garden’s loading dock, replacing vehicle traffic with shaded lunch tables, folding chairs and planter benches. The plaza is part of a neighborhood-revitalization plan spearheaded by Vornado Realty Trust,which owns most of the nearby high-rises and hopes to upgrade what is now regarded as a second-tier location, real estate-wise.
