Monday: Help “Post Plaza” Take Shape Across the Street From Peter Luger

We've got a heads up for an event early next week. There's a public plaza in the works for the triangle where Bedford Avenue meets Broadway in Brooklyn, right by the Williamsburg Bridge. As you can see, there's currently a lake of asphalt occupying some space that could be doing a whole lot more for the neighborhood than it is now.

NYC DOT is hosting a workshop to collect ideas for the new plaza. The agency will present existing conditions and collect feedback to help develop a proposal for the site. If there's enough local support, implementation could come as soon as spring 2013. Here are the details:

6 p.m. - 8 p.m.Williamsburg Art & Historical Center135 Broadway

I won't be attending, but I'd like to see the benches arrayed so everyone can peek over at Peter Luger, where history gets made.
