Greensward, paths, benches, stairs, and trees beckon visitors to Pier 1 in this photo taken from the Brooklyn Bridge on Wednesday, January 27. For some time, we’ve been advised that this portion of Brooklyn Bridge Park would open this month, but January has just two days left and no opening date has been announced. Thanks […]

Park Progress: Thirty-Eighth Report–City/State “Turf War” Delaying Pier 1 Opening?
Park Progress: Thirty-Seventh Report
Our report is nearing the one year mark. Here’s how Pier 1 looked last February: Here’s how it looked this morning, Monday, January 11, 2010: The temporary structure that previously covered the “tot park” at the lower right of the photo has been removed, and stairways are being built at the middle left.
Park Progress: Thirty-Sixth Report
Looking down at Pier 1 from the east tower of the Brooklyn Bridge on Monday morning, December 27, 2009. There’s water in the pond, and a temporary structure has been erected over the “tot park”, perhaps to provide shelter until spring arrives. Contrast this with the last non-snow covered view from this vantage, as taken […]
Park Progress: Thirty-Fifth Report–Winter Wonderland
It looks like the slope of Regina Ridge could be a contender for best sledding spot, though it’s not in Brooklyn Heights proper. Contrast this with the last photo to appear here of Pier 1 with (less) snow, taken from the vantage point of the Brooklyn Bridge last March 6. It should not be too […]
Park Progress: Thirty-Fourth Report
As seen from the east tower of the Brooklyn Bridge this morning (Monday, November 30), Pier 1’s western side is almost completely sodded. What is that crater near the lower left of the photo, just above the truck? The maps posted on the Promenade don’t give a clue. More photos and text after the jump.
Park Progress: Thirty-third Report–It’s beginning to look a lot like a park!
This photo, taken on Sunday, November 9, from the western tower of the Brooklyn Bridge, shows trees and greensward on the riverside flank of Pier 1. On Monday, November 10, workers were laying sod on the eastern flank of Regina Ridge, as seen fom the Promenade. More photos and text follow the jump.
Park Progress: Thirty-Second Report–Trees!
Inclement weather prevented your correspondent from making his usual Brooklyn Bridge transit this morning, but a break in the rain late this afternoon allowed for a few shots from the Promenade. There, peeking over Regina Ridge, are Pier 1’s first five–or is it six?–trees. More are soon to come, I’m sure. Removal of the decking […]
Park Progress: Thirty First Report
Earlier this year, a reader suggested that it would be helpful, from time to time, to compare the most recent image with the earliest one. Here is the photo of the north end of Pier 1 taken from the east tower of the Brooklyn Bridge on February 27, 2009: BHB photo by C. Scales Here’s […]
Park Progress: Thirtieth Report
Instead of the usual comparative pix of Piers 1 and 6 (for what’s going on there now, you need to see Karl Junkersfeld’s videos of his tours of Pier 1 and Pier 6), here are three photos, all taken on Tuesday, October 13, that show new stuff going on this week. Demolition work has begun […]
