The Brooklyn Heights Association has forwarded communications from the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation. An open letter addressed to “Dear Neighbors”, on letterhead of the Conservancy, but co-signed by Regina Myer, President of the BBPDC, and Nancy Webster, Executive Director of the Conservancy, includes the following:
We wanted to let you know that some of the park’s summer events, most notably the Thursday evening Movies With A View series (now in its 11th year), the Saturday afternoon Bridge Culture spoken word and music series, and a special recital by the Metropolitan Opera on Tuesday, July 20, will have amplified sound. We have done our best to minimize noise spillover outside the park’s boundaries, onto the Promenade and adjoining streets. However, we ask for your patience, and your feedback, as we fine-tune the presentation of public events in our new park during its first year of operations, while you recognize the necessity of amplification for these well-attended events.
