7. Downtown Far Rockaway Streetscape

Downtown Far Rockaway Streetscape is the result of a collaborative effort between various community groups and city agencies, including the Department of Design and Construction, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Parks & Recreation, along with W Architecture and Landscape Architecture. Following the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, this streetscape design will completely transform Central Avenue, Mott Avenue, Beach 19th Street, Beach 20th Street, Beach 21st Street and Beach 22nd Street.

With an emphasize on resiliency, redevelopment and pedestrian safety, the project seeks to reinforce Mott Avenue as a “village main street.” It will see the creation of new sidewalks, plazas, public spaces, storm & sanitary sewers and visual elements like tree beds.
