On September 26, representatives from Yeshiva University and the City of New York, along with elected officials and other guests, met for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the newly renovated 20,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza on West 185th Street between Audubon and Amsterdam avenues in Washington Heights, in upper Manhattan. The $3.6 million project upgraded an existing pedestrian plaza to improve infrastructure and provide a safer and more secure location for community members and Yeshiva University students.
