Eyes on the Street: Witness the Birth of Putnam Plaza

Meet the city's newest public space: Putnam Plaza. The epoxy and gravel surface just went down on the block of Putnam Avenue between Fulton Street and Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill. Seating and tables should arrive before the week is out.

NYC DOT is implementing this pedestrian plaza in partnership with the Fulton Area Business Alliance. We'll have a detailed story on the project in the days ahead. For now, enjoy the pictures courtesy of our tipster.
