Open Space Improvements
Parks and Public Spaces
In partnership with NYC Parks, the Horticulture Society of New York and NYC Department of Transportation, the BID maintains, beautifies, and hosts community events at Pitkin Avenue’s parks, pedestrian plazas and public spaces.
Zion Triangle and Pitkin Plaza
Our gateway from the west, Zion Triangle and Pitkin Plaza is host to many of the BID’s most popular community events, such as the Pitkin Ave Tree Lighting, Halloween Harvest Festival and Yoga in the Plaza. The plants, flowers, and trees in the plaza are maintained by the Horticulture Society of New York.
Street Seat at Sal & Paul’s Pizzeria
In partnership with NYC DOT, the BID installed a Street Seat at Sal and Paul’s Pizzeria. The public seating is a popular place for shoppers to take a break or to sit and enjoy one of Sal and Paul’s famous slices. The seating is installed in the Spring and removed in late Autumn. Daily maintenance of the seat is provided by the staff at Sal and Paul’s Pizzeria.
