Since your BHB correspondent’s credentials are in crafting sentences and not engineering, I’m hard-pressed to explain exactly what’s going on in Brooklyn Bridge Park around the areas of Pier 4 and 5 (north of 1 Brooklyn Bridge Park condos, just south of Montague Street). But over the past week, trucks and crews have been pushing forward with what appears to be tangible progress, including some sort of water rampart at the shoreline (see larger image below the jump).
In any case, it’s a pleasure to see any sign of action, aside from DUMBO’s rehab at Fulton Ferry Park. According to the BBP’s website, completion of Pier 5 and a portion its “uplands”—comprising 5 acres of multi-use active recreation and a picnic peninsula with concession, barbeque and play area—is scheduled for completion in Fall 2012. See The Daily News update here.
A reminder: This Monday at 6 p.m., an update on recent and pending changes to the Park will take place during the Community Board 2′s Parks and Recreation Committee meeting, in Dining Rooms A/B (off of the cafeteria) at Brooklyn Hospital, 121 DeKalb Avenue at St. Felix Street, in Fort Greene.
