The ‘mallification’ of Lower Manhattan

A developer’s plans to close Thames Street between Trinity Place and Broadway and turn the street into an outdoor shopping mall were discussed by Community Board 1, reports Matthew Fenton in The Broadsheet. The Board expressed a number of reservations about the project.

Capital Properties, which owns 111 Broadway and 115 Broadway, hopes to close Thames Street, which runs between the properties. Thames Street is currently little used, except by delivery trucks. The street houses two businesses – Stanley’s Shoe Repair and Big Al’s Chicago Pizza – and several empty storefronts.
