In summer there are many events and activities at Brooklyn Bridge Park daily; see a list of ones next week here. Parents should note that on Tuesday morning, June 28, from 10:30 to 11:30 at the small granite prospect facing Pier 3, a Brooklyn Public Library librarian will read children’s stories as part of the “Summer Reading Storytime” series that will continue at the same time on successive Tuesdays through August 9. The event is free. More information here.
If running is a passion for you, on Tuesday evening be at Fornino, at the Pier 6 entrance, at 6:45 to register for New York Road Runners’ free Open Run. These runs will continue on successive Tuesday evenings until further notice. More information here.
On Wednesday evening, June 29 from 6:30 to 7:30, Julie Golia, of the Brooklyn Historical Society, will lead a tour, starting at the Main Street entrance to the park, that will explore the history of the DUMBO waterfront. This is part of the “Park Spotlight” series of tours. Admission is $10, or $5 for Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy members. More information and purchase tickets here.
Also on Wednesday the Pop-Up Pool will re-open. Enjoy it while it lasts; this is its final season.
