The Dumbo Improvement District introduced the installation of Heartwalk, a massive, 30-foot art installation made from Sandy-salvaged wood in the Pearl Street Triangle in Dumbo. Situ Studio (based in 20 Jay Street in Dumbo) was originally commissioned to create the piece for Times Square. Heartwalk will be on view in the Pearl Street Triangle (Water Street at Pearl Street) through April 30, 2013.
Officials from the NYCDOT and NYCDDC hosted a public workshop to gather community input on the permanent design of the plaza space known as Pearl Street Triangle in Dumbo Brooklyn in July 2012. They have incorporated the community’s comments and suggestions and will present premiminary concepts for additional feedback on January 8, 2013 at 6pm at Etsy Labs (55 Washington Street).
As we noted in November 2011, the Dumbo Improvement District secured $20 million for a second phase of street reconstruction, which includes the permanent build out of the Pearl Street Triangle.
