Thanks to reader “DoBro84″ we have a link to the presentation (PDF) given at Monday evening’s meeting about plans for the “Brooklyn Strand,” a series of parks, green spaces, pedestrian and bike paths, and other amenities intended to tie together Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Metro Tech, the Navy Yard, Farragut Houses, and Fort Greene, and to provide a grand entrance to the Borough. If you scroll down through the presentation, you’ll find lots of interesting projected views of how the plans would change to look of specific places. One is of what would replace the parking lot (photo) in the triangle bordered by the southern wall of the New York Supreme Courthouse, Adams Street, and the walkway to the east of Borough Hall, with its apex at Joralemon Street and Adams. So, where will the judges, clerks, and others park? No doubt the plan has a solution for that.
