Finally! Breathing Life Into the Fulton Mall
March 12th, 2009

That was a joke, for anyone who hasn’t roamed Brooklyn’s Fulton Mall recently: most Saturdays the strip is as crowded as Times Square, and with 100,000 shoppers per day it ranks among the most successful commercial stretches in the five boroughs. Nonetheless, the New York City Economic Development Corporation and the local BID collaborated to develop plans to spruce the strip up. Renovations are proceeding apace on Albee Square, the plaza at Fleet and DeKalb, set to open next spring. Yesterday’s Brownstoner writeup of the plans has readers in a tizzy over the curiously Caucasian crowd in the renderings (which are also curiously free of street vendors and city vehicles skirting the bus-only rules).
