Manhattan Bridge
Existing Pedestrian Crossing at Adams Street
Existing Manhattan Bridge Underpass at Sands Street
A unified streetscape along Jay Street would enhance its importance as the main street in the focus area, and visually connect the Downtown Core to the Manhattan Bridge and the waterfront in DUMBO. This could be accomplished through sidewalk treatment, lighting and landscaping. A similar treatment, including median improvements, along Tillary Street would make the pedestrian crossing more convenient, safe and pleasant.

Streetscape improvements are also needed to better integrate Farragut Houses with surrounding neighborhoods and transportation options.
Underpasses should be improved with lighting and clear pathways to improve safety and the transition between neighborhoods.  Signage or artwork either within or on the face of underpasses would create a gateway effect, welcoming pedestrians to the various neighborhoods.  Improved pedestrian access around bridge and expressway on- and off-ramps--such as signage and landscaping--is also needed.
