03/24/2010 in

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New York City Department of Transportation are reconstructing Peter Minuit Plaza at South Ferry Station. The plaza will be a multi-modal transportation center with a pedestrian plaza anchored by the New Amsterdam Plein & Pavilion (seen below) with an information kiosk and food concession. The Plein & Pavilion is made possible by a major grant from the government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the Battery Conservancy. The plaza is scheduled for completion in June 2010.
