Missing Part of Brooklyn Bridge Park to be Completed Starting This Fall

The vacant, fenced off wasteland seen in the photo, which lies just under the Brooklyn Bridge between Water Street and the East River will be made into an attractive bit of parkland that will finally join Brooklyn Bridge Park’s northern and southern sections. For a rendering of what the new parkland should look like, see Ranaan Geberer’s Eagle story. Work is to begin this fall, IAGW.

    That area was the staging ground for construction equipment and supplies, during the renovation of the Brooklyn Bridge. They used to hold the Brooklyn Flea there, and I vaguely remember there were never-realized plans for an ice skating rink there.
