Nosy Neighbor: Is N. Moore Getting Cobblestoned?

I’m trying to figure out if the block of N. Moore between Hudson and Varick will be cobblestoned or not. I can’t seem to find the answer online, the construction guys don’t know, and I can’t get an answer from any of the city agencies I called. Do you know? —G.

I emailed Community Board 1 to ask if they had a contact at the city’s Department of Design and Construction, and they directed me to Jamie Lauren Corssen, the community construction liaison for the Hudson Street Trunk Water Main Project. “With the information I have currently,” she emailed, “the Hudson St. Trunk Water Mains Project (MED596) does not anticipate restoring/re-cobbling N. Moore between Hudson and Varick [above].” Sorry! “N. Moore between Hudson and Greenwich [right] will be restored with cobblestones as part of this project, however this is because there is water main work being completed on that stretch of N. Moore. MED596 is a trunk water main contract, meaning the contract specifies reconstruction only on streets impacted by water main work.”

She then suggested I ask CB1 if they know anything more, but they didn’t. By the way, the HSTWMP(MED596) has a dedicated email:
