Willoughby Street after street closure

Willoughby Street after street closure. The stretch of road in Downtown Brooklyn was relatively unused by pedestrians or autos. In 2006, the New York Depatrtment of Transportation reclaimed the road space as a new public plaza. Before completion, people had already started to gather at the colorful collection of chairs, tables, umbrellas, and planters that replaced the curved stretch of empty roadway. And it cost less than $100,000. Credit: NYC Department of Transportation
