Construction has started on the West side of Hudson Street between King and Charlton and between Charlton and Vandam.

Hudson Street Construction

HSBID has entered into a partnership with the City to transform the stretch of Hudson Street from Canal to West Houston streets into a grand boulevard. The redesign will strengthen neighborhood connectivity, enhance traffic safety, and accentuate Hudson Street as a place to shop, socialize and relax through the installation of design elements including sidewalk extensions, a protected bicycle lane, continuous sidewalk plantings, and custom seating amenities.
