This two-borough tour will cover pedestrian plazas and spaces in the Financial District and Dumbo, from Bowling Green and the famous Charging Bull statue, to the recently renovated Whitehall Ferry Terminal, Peter Minuit Plaza, and Water-Whitehall Plaza. Nearby, the first in-road, government-sanctioned temporary plaza at Coenties Slip, dating back to 1997, has now been elevated with permanent materials. From there, the new East River Ferry makes for a quick trip to Brooklyn, where the new Old Fulton Plaza adds 7,000 square feet of pedestrian space next to Brooklyn Bridge Park. Finally, a quick walk through Dumbo leads to Pearl Street Plaza.
