The intersection of Tillary and Adams Street has a pretty bad rep, but that could change if DOT moves ahead with its plan [pdf] to beautify the "gateway to the Brooklyn Bridge" by spiffing up the pedestrian and bicycle path that originates at Tillary. DOT presented its ideas for the upgrade at a public workshop with the Pedestrian Projects Group in Downtown Brooklyn last week; more refinements will be made before the designs come before Community Board 2 in the fall. “The approach from the bridge should be a grand one for vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. It should let them feel they’ve really arrived somewhere,” said Terra Ishee of the Department of Transportation (DOT) Pedestrian Projects Group. Check out the StreetsBlog post for lots of details on the proposal.
