Temporary sidewalk extensions are in on 32nd Street near Penn Station.
As Streetsblog reported in June, this is one element of a larger effort, spearheaded by Vornado Realty Trust in partnership with the city, to make more room for people walking in the area. The three-month pilot project also includes a pedestrian plaza on 33rd Street between Seventh Avenue and the Madison Square Garden loading docks.
If they prove popular, Vornado, which owns a lot of properties nearby, may look to make the changes permanent.
