How has the Connection made an impact?
Before the Hudson Square Connection was founded, the art-deco loft buildings that lined our streets were on the verge of becoming the City’s new creative center. But, even as tenants were moving in, the area didn’t feel like a neighborhood.
We began with a vision: put the community first. This meant transforming our streets to prioritize the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and local traffic, and making Hudson Square a place where people feel safe, comfortable, and healthy.
To that end, we created our $27 million neighborhood improvement plan, Hudson Square Is Now, our award-winning public-private partnership for a new, green, pedestrian friendly neighborhood.
