South Plaza

The South Plaza is intended to provide a generously scaled multi-use space for the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District’s diverse events, performances, daily activities, and special events.

South Plaza

It is first and foremost a grand urban plaza, designed to enable people to gather, sit, relax, eat, people-watch, or simply pass through a vital and engaging public place.
