In the last couple of years, community groups and the Department of Transportation have been working on a bring some degree of order to the parking and sidewalk chaos in Chinatown and parts of the Lower East Side. At a recent Community Board meeting, the DOT presented a draft of its “Chinatown Curbside Management Study.”

The study outlines a series of fairly simple improvements, including the widening of sidewalks and new parking regulations along stretches of Mott, Hester, Catherine and Orchard streets, as well as East Broadway.  The next step: a series of public workshops on some of the streets which would be impacted by the plan.

Here’s where DOT staffers will be located on each day:

  • June 4 and 5 – Mott Street between Broome and Bayard
  • June 6 and 7 – East Broadway between Catherine and Market
  • June 8 – Orchard Street between Broome and Delancey

The workshops will take place from 10 a..m.-7 p.m. each day.  Here’s a look at the draft plan:

  1. The is issue is NOT the “parking” or “sidewalk” chaos. The real issue is in the last decade is drivers have become less conscience and less considerate. And pedestrians are simply oblivious to traffic conditions around them. Even bicyclist think they are on top of the food chain and expect cars and people to give them “right of way”…
