Your Input Wanted on Parks Survey

Both the Brooklyn Heights Association and Community Board 2 have requested local residents to take a survey initiated by C.B.2 and designed to determine how we view and use our parks and playgrounds. Data gathered through the survey will be submitted to the Department of City Planning. You may take the survey here.

    Thanks Claude!

    For the option “Bride Park 2 or Bridge Park 3″, which is which? (Since “Bridge Park 1″ isn’t an option, I guess it’s the section closest to the Manhattan Bridge?)

  • Robert Perris

    Bridge Park is not Brooklyn Bridge Park, which is not a city park. Bridge Park 2 is the asphalt field between the York Street subway station and Farragut Houses. Bridge Park 3 is on the other side of the BQE:

    Thank you! I almost made a lot of irrelevant choices regarding bathrooms.

    So.. this survey does not actually include Brooklyn Bridge Park?

  • Robert Perris

    That is correct; it only surveys city parks. There are a few of those in the neighborhood that shares a name with this blog.

  • Jorale-man

    OK, so the park that’s been the most divisive and has caused the most heated debate in the neighborhood is omitted from a survey about the parks. Hmm.

  • Robert Perris

    Please tell me you are being facetious. Otherwise, all we are left with is, you just don’t get it or you need to twist everything to your own purpose.

    This is a phony, amateurish survey which could be used against those of us who are concerned about the misuse of BB and Cadman parks for hyper-amplified, neighborhood disturbing noises which the Parks Dept. can and should control.

  • Robert Perris

    Please tell me how and why we would do that.

    Glad CB2 is making this effort. Thanks for the opportunity to provide some feedback.

    I started to take it, but there are too many required questions about which I have no knowledge (clean-up, bathrooms, etc.). Would have been happy to submit, but doesn’t seem designed to get accurate answers.

    I’ve volunteered in Cadman Park and am glad to see it so popular after decades of neglect. But change brings challenges. The noisy events (and I mean ear-splitting and window rattling for hours) are a big problem for us residents, and have been reported on multiple times.

    There isn’t one noise section on this survey, nor is there a blank comments section for any other issues. Both are necessary for comprehensive feedback.

    100 % agree Mary–what good is a survey if they don’t give a spot to add comments to find out what’s really on park user’s minds?? This survey is a failure.

  • Robert Perris

    Almost 300 people managed to complete the survey as it was designed. I am sorry it couldn’t be all things to all people.

  • Remsen Street Dweller

    I don’t think that is a good enough answer if residents of that area are dealing with serious noise problems.

  • Robert Perris

    CB2 is in an ongoing dialogue with DPR and NYPD and other agencies regarding noise in Brooklyn Bridge and Cadman Plaza parks. It would be a gross misinterpretation, perhaps even willful, to think that the survey is the only way the community board learns about issues or addresses them.
