“The master plan for these two full city blocks [bound by Ninth and Tenth Avenues, as well as West 31st and West 33rd Streets,] is organized round a series of distinct public open spaces. These will provide unique areas for repose and contribute to the dynamic pedestrian streetscape, connecting Moynihan Station to the far West Side of Manhattan by means of a walkable West 32nd Street extension.”
