[UPDATE: More Pearl Street Triangle updates.]
Starting today, the Pearl Street Triangle will be closed to begin work on the pedestrian plaza. Water Street between Pearl Street and Anchorage Place will be closed to traffic. Cars parked in the triangle (between Anchorage Place and Pearl Street) will be towed and the dozen or so spaces will be gone for good. The initial planters and furniture will be installed while the pavement is being put in place to accommodate the area. This project is one of the previously announced initiatives by the Dumbo Improvement District. The NYCDOT will revise parking regulations in the immediate surrounding area to provide some additional parking spaces.
