The Street Design Manual is New York City's comprehensive resource for street design standards, guidelines, and policies. It draws from a wide range of resources and experience to present a coherent set of choices for street design. These range from ubiquitous features, such as standard sidewalk concrete and street lights, to newer design elements like pedestrian safety islands, bus bulbs, and protected bicycle lanes. This second edition, published in December, includes updates and new content, based on feedback from users and comprehensive inter- and intra-agency review. Highlights include: • New Process chapter describes how street projects are planned, designed, and implemented • New Landscape chapter includes expanded content on stormwater-capturing infrastructure, plantings in the public right-of-way, and information on the planning, design, and implementation of landscape projects • Reorganized Lighting chapter provides updated pole and fixture options • Expanded Furniture chapter • Expanded and updated introductions to all the previously existing chapters, mostly to clarify process issues Since the publication of the first edition of the Manual, New York City has eliminated some treatments, tested new ones, and incorporated still more into its toolbox. Key additions and changes include the construction of raised crosswalks (2.3.4); the development of a standard detail for permeable interlocking concrete pavers (3.1.12) for use adjacent to public schools; the selection of a standard LED fixture (4.2.2) and of teardrop and shielded teardrop LED fixtures (4.2.5); the design and deployment of bike share stations (5.4) and the WalkNYC wayfinding system (5.11); and the completion of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) right-of-way bioswale detail (6.6.1a). Ring binder; 264 pages; 10 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches.
