Prospect Heights


In Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, residents and business owners are working with City agencies to create new temporary and permanent public spaces. Reimagining our streets provides more space for people and new opportunities for the public to enjoy, and makes our streets safer. These new spaces promote local economic development and employment, and help New York City achieve its environmental and climate-related goals. Most importantly, they are planned and operated by and for members of the Prospect Heights community. They are truly Prospect Heights places.

The Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council (PHNDC) works under an agreement with the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) to sponsor this community-led initiative as part of DOT’s Open Streets program. In addition to receiving funding from DOT, the Prospect Heights Open Streets program is funded by the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS), corporate sponsors, individual donors, and participating local businesses.

All members of the public are welcome to enjoy the Open Streets and plazas in Prospect Heights, and are invited to attend any of the many free events listed on this website.
