Prospect Heights' Vanderbilt Ave To Become New 'Open Boulevard'

Prospect Heights’ Open Street on Vanderbilt Avenue is about to get supercharged, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The mayor announced Wednesday that a new “Open Boulevard” concept is coming to 10 corridors across the city, including on Vanderbilt Avenue.

The new initiative will build off of the city’s existing Open Streets and Open Restaurants program, which closes certain blocks to traffic to allow New Yorkers to walk, ride, dine and shop in the roadway. Full details are still to come.

The “supercharged” version of the city’s Open Streets and Open Restaurants program will transform 10 corridors across the city.
