Beverley Road open street transformed into permanent pedestrian plaza

Kensington’s temporary open street on Beverley Road has officially been transformed into a permanent pedestrian plaza.

Since 2022, Mayor Eric Adams’ administration has worked in conjunction with community partners to host weekend open streets on the westernmost block of Beverley Road between East Second Street and Church Avenue in Kensington. On Oct. 11, the stretch was transformed into a colorful, permanent plaza that adds approximately 5,600 square feet of space to the existing Kensington Plaza, which sits adjacent to the road.
