Wonders of the Sea on display at the New York Aquarium on 35th Street, opera at the Manhattan Opera House on 34th Street, gambling at the Bronze Door on 33rd Street, and much more.
Know NYC, 34th Street Partnership's history sign system, creates a sense of place for pedestrians at 21 historic sites in the 34th Street district. Through themes of transformation, commerce, and community, the signs tell the story of the district's illustrious past. Click on the slideshow to view a few featured signs and a map of sign locations.
34SP maintains 35 benches placed along the District's major thoroughfares - perfect rest havens for package-laden shoppers and weary sightseers.
The CityBench is inspired by the constant movement and urban rhythms of New York City. The three seats on each bench have generous proportions to accommodate a wide range of people with ample space. As part of the CityBench program NYC DOT installed 1,000 units in all five boroughs to make streets and sidewalks more inviting for New Yorkers.
