GAP design update
I decided to go in a different direction with the Grand Army Plaza (GAP) redesign. Instead of working within the current design, I decided that more open and green space needed to be directly attached to the fountain and arch. With this in mind the design has taken away lanes of traffic and the pedestrian way along Plaza Street has been revamped and reappropriated to the center. Also, with this new design there will be no more than two crossings before you reach the center.
For my new design the traffic is now two ways, Prospect Park West also will have to be two ways. No parking will be allowed on Plaza Street and there will be a separated bus and bike way.
