Delancey, Grand & Essex: Pizza & Build Flash Competition

Jun 22 @ 5:30 PM - 10:30 PM

With the impending shut down of the L train, the MTA intends to send 70 shuttle buses an hour over the Williamsburg Bridge. Once those buses exit the bridge, they will travel across Delancey Street. Additional bike lanes are also being proposed for Delancey Street. Meanwhile, the traffic is piling up on Grand Street from the FDR Drive to Essex Street due to changes in traffic patterns, affecting the residential makeup of the neighborhood. This fast-paced, one-night design competition invites multidisciplinary teams to propose design solutions for moving traffic, pedestrians, bikes, and buses safely at this contested crossroads. Spectators are invited to watch the presentations and jury comments, followed by the announcement of a winner and a celebration. There is no fee to enter. All submissions must be emailed to by midnight June 13. Photo by Robin Schatell
