As seen during my walk on Saturday morning, the all wooden pedestrian bridge that will connect Columbia Heights and Squibb Park to Brooklyn Bridge Park has its sections completely in place, though guardrails are still being installed. We look forward to walking it once it has been opened. More photos and text follow the jump.
