The vision for Water Street proposes broad integrated changes in the physical environment to sustain the success of Lower Manhattan's key commercial corridor. The character of the Water Street subdistrict calls for ambitious and holistic intervention across each facet of the physical environment. The product of a two-year effort, this study was designed to capture and synthesize the views of a broad and inclusive range of stakeholders.
