Eyes on the Street: From Parking to Parklet in Hell’s Kitchen
Courtesy of Christine Berthet of CHEKPEDS, here are photos of what could be Manhattan’s newest public space, a pocket park on Dyer Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen.
This plaza, conceived by area residents, occupies a sliver of traffic island on Dyer between 34th and 35th Streets, near the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel. The space was formerly used for motorcycle parking.
Berthet says this is an interim installation, since plans are on hold to convert three lanes of leftover asphalt on Dyer into a park.
