Brooklyn Bridge Park President Eric Landau has issued the following guidance for use of the park while New York is on PAUSE:
The health and safety of our staff, visitors, and community is our top priority. While the Park is open, please note that it is open for passive use and solitary recreation only. We encourage people to walk their dog, go for a run, or just spend a few minutes outside. While in the Park, please be sure to practice good social distancing, keeping at least 6 feet apart from others.
In the interest of everyone’s wellbeing, areas of the Park where social distancing is not practical (e.g., Pier 6 Volleyball Courts, Pier 2 Basketball and Handball Courts) are closed until further notice. All athletic permits for Pier 5 have been suspended, including Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Youth Soccer League.
Additionally, Jane’s Carousel, Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Environmental Education Center, Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO, and Brooklyn Pubic Library Annex are all closed until further notice.
