Pedestrian plazas improve the safety of and access to the streets.
Crosswalk countdown signals give pedestrians more information on how much time is left, reduce the number of pedestrians caught in the crosswalk, and increases their safety.
High visibility lane striping provides better visibility for pedestrians and drivers.
Benches have been placed around the neighborhood, so you don't have to go very far to enjoy the outdoors!
Bike racks are an important addition to a neighborhood teeming with bicyclists. These racks provide space for bike commuters to safely lock their bike.

When Hudson Square was a Printing District there were some 12,000 people working here; today there are more than 40,000. Working with our partners in government, including NYC, the MTA and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey we work tirelessly to make the streets of Hudson Square safer and more inviting for our workers and visitors. This included the addition of pedestrian plazas, timed countdown signals, and high visibility crosswalks.

Before the Hudson Square Connection was founded, the streets of the neighborhood were barren. There were few places to sit outside, and the needs of pedestrians and cyclists were going unmet. Working with the City, we were able to install benches and bike racks around the neighborhood.
