“Smoking in parks is now down two-thirds and we now have less litter at our beaches and playgrounds,” Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley told.
At Dorman Square in Midwood, Brooklyn, the Department of Transportation wants to shut down a one-block stretch of Elm Avenue and a create a pedestrian plaza, like the one in Clinton Hill, where the DOT kicked out cars and installed cafe tables and chairs.
