This is a space a lot of people thought would never change... It can be a catalyst to help change all the things that are wrong in the city of Lawrence.
— Mayor Daniel Rivera

We are pleased to announce the City of Lawrence unveiled Lawrence Alleyway, a connector between the Northern Essex Community College campus and downtown, located between Amesbury and Hampshire streets. The design, which was inspired from Utile's Downtown West Study for the City of Lawrence, seeks primarily to improve pedestrian connectivity into and around Northern Essex Community College’s El-Hefni Allied Health and Technology Center, while also enhancing storm water drainage and parking. The seating, lighting, and strong graphic language of the ground plane and wall murals (by Elevated Thought), re-claim the alley as a safe and primary connector between the College and Essex Street.
