This week the Public Design Commission finally approved the plans for the Myrtle Plaza, a pedestrian-streets design for Myrtle Avenue between Hall Street and Emerson Place. The plan to revamp the avenue, add community programing and public art, and construct a two-block pedestrian plaza between Hall and Grand has long been delayed. Specific improvements include better crossings, new bus stops, new trees and planters, game tables, a water fountain, a permanent art installation, and moveable tables and chairs. Myrtle Minutes reported that construction will begin this summer and will last for more than a year. The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership has a Flickr set with all the proposed designs for the avenue.
