Safety Enhancements

Spring is here, and with it comes public outdoor seating at Ruth Wittenberg Triangle!  This year we are thrilled to feature temporary sculptures by artist John Shriner, which will be installed for two months until NYCDOT expands the plaza later this summer.  More greenery and pedestrian safety improvements will follow, both at the intersection and along 8th Street, so stay tuned!
