Streetfilm: The Transformation of Meat Market Plaza

The past few weeks, we've kept an eye on the rapid progress of Gansevoort Plaza in the Meatpacking District. Lest we forget about its slightly older neighbor to the north, Meat Market Plaza, Streetfilms' Clarence Eckerson, Jr. cut together this short video capturing the site (Ninth Avenue between 14th and 15th Streets) before, during, and after construction. The project was completed last fall and is enjoying copious use with the advent of spring.

Clarence hopes to give other street transformations similar treatment, and he expects to keep busy doing it: 

With announcements from city agencies coming fast and furious,Streetfilms will attempt to document what we can during this on-goingrenaissance for pedestrians, cyclists and denizens of NYC. This is notonly important for our city, but to show the rest of the world theincredible leaps being attempted here. Heck, there’s no better tool toinspire change than a well-edited, before & after video short.
