About the Clivner=Field Plaza



The Clivner=Field Pedestrian Plaza, located along East 25th Street between Lexington and Third avenues, opened to Baruch College and the surrounding community in December 2012. Securing the plaza was a neighborhood effort to provide much-needed open space in our community district, which has one of the lowest amounts of open space in Manhattan.

Currently, the plaza is undergoing construction in order to create the permanent plaza. The work is expected to be complete by June 2020 and during this time, the plaza will be closed.

Baruch College collaborated with external stakeholders from Community Board 6, the 23 Street Partnership, local elected officials, residents and businesses on the block, among others, who advised on the planning and development of the permanent plaza. This helped ensure that the final design is one that the college community, local residents, and area businesses can be proud of and enjoy regularly. The Clivner=Field Pedestrian Plaza will be a destination for a wide range of programming for both the College and the community at large. The architectural renderings are available here.

Baruch College appreciates your patience during this construction phase, and looks forward to the increased quality of life that the permanent plaza will provide. For more information on the construction, please visit the updates section on this page.
