Since its September 2002 launch, LowerManhattan.info has served as a one-stop site for downtown construction and community information. From daily construction updates to e-mail alerts to Lower Manhattan news and events, this guide will help direct you to the latest rebuilding details for New York's most historic and vibrant neighborhood.
Traffic, Transit, and Rebuilding Advisories
Visit our Get It Fast page for a quick list of this week's travel advisories and short- and long-term traffic changes throughout Lower Manhattan's neighborhoods. Links to the latest air monitoring updates are also posted here.
Up-to-date reports on downtown's multiple air-monitoring stations are available in our air monitoring programs section, as well as via the "Get It Fast" air monitoring list. These include links to the LMDC's daily reports for 130 Liberty Street, Fiterman Hall reports, as well as updates from the LMCCC's and EPA's stationary air monitors.
Additionally, as part of its mission to mitigate the impact of construction on the Lower Manhattan community, the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center (LMCCC) performs regular sidewalk surveys from various construction sites throughout downtown to monitor noise levels.
You can also subscribe to e-mail updates to get a weekly review of downtown-related news, and the latest construction, traffic, and transit updates. Also available is an RSS feed that automatically delivers our new content direct to your computer. It's simple to log on and choose the alerts you prefer.
NotifyNYC is a city service that delivers emergency information to the public. You can subscribe to receive urgent notices from the Office of Emergency Management via text message and email.
