The Uplands (land) section of Brooklyn Bridge Park in front of Piers 3 and 4 has opened for public use. It features a series of bike and pedestrian paths from the Pier 5 BBQ area to the existing pathway at Pier 2, grassy lawns (sadly closed until Spring to allow for further growth) a granite plaza overlooking the future Pier 3 lawn and a sound attenuating berm which muffles the sound of the BQE enough to hear the waves from the East River lapping at the shore. A future addition will be a “pebble beach” and boat launch adjacent to the water. Music, entertainment and children’s activities are being provided through 1 PM, and a tour will be held at 12 noon.
