The sidewalk on Washington Street, between York Street and Front Street is being replaced with ‘pigmented sidewalks’. The West side of the street is being completed this week. Repairs will begin on the East side of the street tomorrow, according to the NYC Department of Design + Construction. Ongoing work is occurring on Washington Street and Plymouth Streets with the installation of Auger piles, installing curbs on Water Street between Washington and Adams Streets, and backfilling of trench and placing temporary asphalt on roadway over the trench near the intersection of Water and Adams Streets.
Since many have asked, yes, the Belgian blocks in Dumbo will eventually be repaired as it was on Water Street between Old Fulton Street and Main Street.

The scaffolding has come down at The Gramercy Park Flowers storefront at 32 Adams Street and it looks like it’s progressing well. The industrial-style windows resemble those of the old factories when this 1914 building at 55 Washington Street (Gair Building #6) was a cardboard factory. As posted early this month, the florist plans on opening sometime in March on April 1 (updated 2/23 per Two Trees).
