Triangle parks along Flatbush just past Barclays to get pedestrian makeover

From the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Transformation of Flatbush Avenue ‘Triangle Parks’ begins next week:
After more than a decade of advocacy and planning, a project to transform three triangular parks along North Flatbush Avenue into pedestrian-friendly islands of green will kick off next week.
The North Flatbush Reconstruction Project will bring new sidewalks, benches, wayfaring signs, solar compactors, infrastructure and greenery to three traffic triangles formed where Flatbush Avenue intersects with Carlton, Sixth and Seventh avenues, not far from Barclays Center.
Above right is a rendering of the triangle at Flatbush, Sixth and St. Marks avenues, which is just two blocks from the southeast corner of the arena block. (That blank wall in the back, I believe, would be the nightspot Woodland.)

Below is the full plan, as of 2013, from the New York City Department of Transportation.
