(42nd Street between Broadway and Avenue of the Americas)

Open Monday-Friday, 8am-7pm

Join The Durst Organization and chashama in celebrating the four semi-finalists of the vision42 international design competition in  which participants have been encouraged to create designs that will enhance the pedestrian ambiance and mobility of 42nd Street.
The competition is intended to spur architects, planners, and urban designers from around the world to develop creative proposals for remaking this important but noisy, traffic-clogged street into a world-class pedestrian environment and public space that is served by a high-quality, low-floor, modern surface light rail tram. The winning designs utilize the potential of the boulevard to inspire New Yorkers and the city’s elected officials to transform the street into a model for a 21st century live/work space and important public transportation corridor.
