A pop up plaza is coming to the western end of Jay Street, in Dumbo, near the East River inlet and the fenced-in Con Ed station. The Dumbo Improvement District will bring in seating, umbrellas, planters and bike lanes to the space. It will be installed sometime this summer. Alexandria Sica, the executive director of the Dumbo Improvement District, says “It’s a very simple intervention and one that will brighten up the end of Dumbo’s Jay Street retail stretch.” The space will complement the commercial activity near the temporary St. Ann’s Warehouse, the Brooklyn Roasting Company, and 10 Jay Street. Community Board Two’s Transportation Committee recently approved the plans, and the DOT has endorsed them as well. Check out a sketch of the proposed plans here.
