Bike Paths Coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park

The NY Post reports that Brooklyn Bridge Park will be getting a bike and pedestrian path within the next week.   It will connect Piers 1 and 6 from Old Fulton Street to Atlantic Avenue.  It will connect to the existing bike lane along Columbia Street at DeGraw:

NY Post: A four-block stretch of the new path recently surfaced, running northbound from Pier 6 around the One Brooklyn Bridge Park condo complex before turning onto a barricaded two-way lane on Furman Street, from Joralemon Street until around Montague Street.

It then heads into a fenced-in area along the waterfront near Pier 4 and runs to Pier 1, passing parts of the park under construction along the way. Ellen Ryan, a spokeswoman for the city-controlled park, said the city is putting final touches on this section of the pathway before opening it to pedestrians and cyclists “probably within one week.”

    Very exciting! Does anybody have a map showing precisely where it’s going?

    I believe its relatively close (although not too close) to the water. I love this park and can’t wait til it is [mostly] done in 2+ years. I really think the real estate closest to the park will rapidly appreciate over the next 2-6 years with the park coming in to its own.

    Will the churches in the neighborhood will be using the new bike path for extra parking space?
