Now we’ve got before and after photos of the $20 million revitalization of Fulton Street and its pedestrian plazas. As we reported last week, local politicians joined the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corp. Tuesday for a ribbon-cutting, above, at Marcy Plaza to celebrate the completion of the years-long effort. All that money went toward renovating Restoration Plaza, creating “streetscape improvements,” and installing public wifi and art in public plazas.
“The scope and success of this revitalization project exemplifies our community’s commitment to showcasing our many assets so that long-term residents, newcomers and visitors can experience Bedford Stuyvesant at its best,” said Council Member Al Vann.
