It's been more than three decades since the stretch of Flatbush Avenue that divides Prospect Heights and Park Slope had anything resembling a makeover. That's all about to change, as the North Flatbush BID begins to solicit bids from contractors for implementing a planting-and-bikerack-heavy redesign from W Architecture and Landscape Architecture. (Nevermind that the rendering above appears to actually be Park Place and not Flatbush.) "We haven’t had a facelift since the 1970s," the BID's Executive Director Sharon Davidson told The Brooklyn Paper. “We should be more of a destination than a conduit to Downtown Brooklyn.” With a recent kick-in from the Borough President, the project currently has $600,000 pledged toward it.
