Last week local politicians and representatives from the Department of Transportation cut the ribbon at Willoughby Plaza, a permanent public plaza now open in Downtown Brooklyn. This morning we snapped a few photos of the 14,000 square foot space. It features new landscaping, lighting and public seating. The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is in charge of public programming here.
