Doyers Street, one of the oldest roads in New York City’s Chinatown will become a permanent pedestrian street.
In 2020 the street was closed to cars because of the pandemic and the need for more space for outdoor dining.
The Department of Transportation will add in new features to Doyers Street including gravel, markings and plants.
“DOT is proud to build on the success of our Open Streets with proposals to formalize spaces like the Doyers Open Street as a permanent pedestrian plaza,” said DOT spokesman Vin Barone, reported by NYC Street Blog. “The Doyers open street is a must-visit Chinatown destination that is remarkably popular among visitors and local businesses alike.”
