Our ever alert and helpful friends at Brooklyn Community Board 2 have notified us that, effective now, Willow Street between Middagh and Pierrepont streets (practically its entire length) has been added to the “Open Streets” program, described in Mayor de Blasio’s press release as follows:
Open Streets are simple closures of streets to vehicles and do not feature any programming, seating, or other elements that might encourage gathering. These closures may not be implemented on a bus, truck, or emergency route. Limited access to the street shall be maintained to allow for essential deliveries, emergency needs, and/or to retrieve a parked vehicle.
Willow joins Joralemon between Hicks and Furman as Brooklyn Heights streets designated as Open Streets.
