Hudson Square is coming together
As part of our $27 million beautfication plan, Hudson Square Is Now, we have planted and retrofitted 250 trees around the neighborhood, putting crossing guards on Varick Street, and begun the redesign of the park at Spring + 6th Avenue. By implementing these initiatives, we are improving traffic flow, creating open spaces, bringing green to our streets and making Hudson Square a place for people (not just cars!). read more
This summer, the Hudson Square Connection is jazzing up lunchtime with outdoor music at Freeman Plaza East! Starting May 31, we’ll be hosting music performances during lunchtime on Wednesdays. So grab your lunch and come on over and relax with some sun, some food, and some tunes.
Freeman Plaza East is open Mondays – Fridays from 8am-dusk.
The entrance is on Varick Street – between Broome and Watts Streets.
