PHNDC manages two open streets under the NYC DOT Open Streets program: Vanderbilt Avenue and Underhill Avenue.

Vanderbilt Avenue

Vanderbilt Avenue is an open street with temporary full closure on weekends. For more information visit the Vanderbilt Avenue website.

Underhill Avenue

The Underhill Avenue open street has temporary limited local access on weekdays. No through traffic is permitted when the open street is in effect, and the speed limit is 5 mph. Residents can continue to park on the street, and local deliveries are allowed. Visit for socially-distanced walking, running, biking, playing and gathering. The Underhill open street is maintained by volunteers; sign up here to join.

PHNDC also sponsors programming during the Underhill Avenue open street hours. Check our calendar of events for the latest updates.
