Elizabeth H. Berger Plaza Is Now Open For Your Springtime Outdoor Enjoyment
The sun is (mostly) shining, the birds are chirping and the great outdoors are begging you to put your laptop away and take in the now-sprouting greenery. And there’s no better place to get some fresh air than Elizabeth H. Berger Plaza, now open to the public.
The George Vellonakis-designed plaza includes a lush grass-filled center surrounded by a stone-paved walkway and benches, making it an inviting spot for Lower Manhattanites to stroll, sit and sun. The space can be accessed via two entrances, and is bound by Greenwich Street to the west, Edgar Street to the north and Trinity Place to the east.
The plaza’s namesake, the late Elizabeth Berger, was a longtime advocate for Lower Manhattan and the president of the Downtown Alliance from 2007 to 2013.
