Transforming Chinatown into a warmer and more welcoming neighborhood at night.
Among the most beloved of
Chinese flowers, plum blossom symbolizes
the winter and blooms
most vibrantly in the winter months.
In what has become a
neighborhood tradition, plum blossom-inspired garlands greet and
welcome visitors to Chinatown.
Chinatown Partnership also worked with the NYC Department of
Transportation to brighten up Canal Street sidewalks with
"pedestrian arms" lights.
In response to rising community concerns lobbied by Chinatown
Partnership about dimly lit, highly traversed Canal Street, the New
York City Department of Transportation (DOT) installed 19
supplemental illuminated “pedestrians arms” on lampposts along the
busy corridor from Broadway to the Bowery.
The new radiant extensions have increased sidewalk
illumination and safety and allayed security worries.
