my $.02 on the GAP
I have decided to enter a competition to redesign Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. I ride through the GAP on a daily basis on my commute into Manhattan for work or school. I have just started to sketch out some of my ideas but plan on making my changes pretty simple with large impacts for pedestrian access and recreation. While Gehl and Gapco have both done excellent plans, I believe that you have to be extremely realistic as to what can be accomplished at this site. My only catch will be that cars, other than emergency vehicles, will be banned from Prospect Park. I'll update the blog as I make progress.
