Reinventing Grand Army Plaza on Lopate Tomorrow

GAPco.jpg

More and more, we're seeing grassroots, community-driven Livable Streets project gaining traction on the citywide level. Here's another example of just that:

Tomorrow, Tupper Thomas of the Prospect Park Alliance and Deborah Marton of the Design Trust for Public Space will be discussing the Reinventing Grand Army Plaza project on "The Leonard Lopate Show." Tune in from 12:00 to 2:00 pm at 93.9 FM or 820 AM. WNYC is also asking New Yorkers to weigh in on the Lopate web site:

Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza is the main entrance to Prospect Park, and it's been called New York City's answer to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. However, the space as it is used today is difficult to walk around, drive around, and is generally not very user-friendly. What do you like and dislike about the way Grand Army Plaza is currently used? What would you like to see changed?
