Myrtle Avenue Plaza

The Myrtle Avenue Plaza will be a 25,000 square foot pedestrian oasis on Myrtle Avenue between Hall Street and Emerson Place in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. The plaza will be filled with 42 trees, ornamental plants, various types of seating, space for temporary events, and other amenities. Following construction, the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership will maintain and program the plaza, creating a beloved new public space in Clinton Hill.
