The MPIA and the NYC DOT have been working together to renovate the public plazas in the Meatpacking District along Ninth Avenue, and the changes are now beginning to take place. Last week, new planters were placed and planted, and the old bollards and concrete blocks that previously delineated our public plazas were removed. In the upcoming two months, the Meatpacking District will see new bollards outlining these plazas, as well as chairs, tables and umbrellas placed inside of them for the public to enjoy. The trash cans along Ninth Avenue between Gansevoort and 14th Streets will also be replaced with special cans, just for this district.
Check out the new plantings now in place in the Meatpacking District and keep an eye open for the rest of the changes taking place soon!
