The Detroit Steps Project is a long-term effort by a group of local residents to beautify, light, and landscape Sunnyside’s Detroit Steps (Detroit Street from Hearst to Joost Avenues), with the ultimate aim to install artwork on the steps, making them a destination for walkers and visitors.
For the 2019 District 7 Participatory Budgeting ballot, the first step goes forward with the proposal “Preparing Sunnyside’s Detroit Steps for Landscaping and Art”. Voting opens in April 2019. We need the support of D7 residents to vote for the project. More about the Detroit Steps below. An archive of posts about the Detroit Steps here.
