Midwood Gets Funding for Library Plaza

BROOKLYN -

A new outdoor plaza will be built on Midwood’s East 16th Street near Avenue J to house a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library.

The plaza, funded by a $250,000 allocation by Councilman David Greenfield, will have benches, trees and plantings, and other amenities to provide respite for shoppers, pedestrians and commuters who frequent the active commercial zone.
