Wanted: Community Input on Chinatown Parking Saturday

The DOT is conducting a lengthy and detailed study of traffic and parking issues in Chinatown.

The NYC Department of Transportation has trained its eye on the myriad problems of Chinatown’s streets: curbside parking difficulties, crowded sidewalks, confusing signage and other factors that make getting around one of Manhattan’s busiest neighborhoods difficult.

After several press events announcing their intentions, DOT officials are now seeking input from residents, business owners and others affected by the issues they are examining.

On Saturday, June 25, the folks behind the study will host two workshops to explain their project and welcome feedback at P.S. 130 (143 Baxter St., between Grand and Hester). The first is from 10 a.m. to noon, the second from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Content is the same at both.

Read more about Saturday’s event, and background on the study, here. The original announcement, from early May, is available here.

    Wait, why is chinatown that far east… nope not chinatown.

    Hmm,  when we in SoHo complained that the proposed Chinatown BID included a number of blocks in our neighborhood, and worried that that part of SoHo would lose its identity, Wellington C assured us that it was still SoHo.  Any yet, here is a map that is just about congruent to the Chinatown BID territory, and they are calling it Chinatown.
