Vines twined around a tree trunk near the Remsen Street entrance to the Promenade. These photos are from several walks over the past week. Flowers in a garden along Remsen Street near Clinton. Nothing biting…yet. Pier 5, Brooklyn Bridge Park. East River Monster? Seen from the south side of Pier 5, this piece of flotsam […]
Late Wednesday afternoon I took a walk north along the Promenade, across the pedestrian bridge to Pier 1, south along the Brooklyn Bridge Park walkway to Pier 5, then up Joralemon to home on Montague. Cherry blossoms provided a splash of color at the Promenade’s north end. Brilliant green ferns on the Pier 1, Brooklyn […]
Having slept in for a while this morning, I got a somewhat later start than usual on my Saturday walk, heading out shortly before noontime. As I walked, I noticed that the Forsythia, which were just beginning to bloom last week, and pear blossoms, which were not to be seen then, were profuse along Hicks […]
My morning walks, these days mostly confined to Saturday mornings because of my work schedule, usually follow the same route: from Montague on to the Promenade, down one block to Remsen, across to Hicks, down to Joralemon, then down the hill, past One Brooklyn Bridge Park and on to Pier 5. I then walk around […]
Here’s a sign of green things to come. Brooklyn Bridge Park’s five-acre Pier 5, which officially opened in December, was lighted at dusk Saturday night with folks kicking a ball around, as viewed from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Imagine the increased signs of life once the temps turn warm. Good things on the way. The […]
Brooklyn Bridge Park announced a lineup of concessionaires for the Park this coming spring and summer. Returning to Pier 1 will be the Brooklyn Bridge Wine Bar and Blue Marble Ice Cream. Calexico Carne Asada (photo), which was missing last summer, will return, but to a new location, the Main and Plymouth streets entrance to […]
The communications tower atop the new One World Trade Center is taking shape, as it approaches its maximum height of 1,776 feet. Note the copper-patina bluish green spire of 40 Wall Street directly in front of it. This was taken from Pier 5, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Duck paddling in the water next to Pier 5. […]
As seen during my walk on Saturday morning, the all wooden pedestrian bridge that will connect Columbia Heights and Squibb Park to Brooklyn Bridge Park has its sections completely in place, though guardrails are still being installed. We look forward to walking it once it has been opened. More photos and text follow the jump. […]
Mr. J. and his cam were busy this past week. In addition to his visit to Julianna’s, Karl attended the grand opening of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5 Thursday morning. In his video, Karl begins with a retrospective of some of his favorite BBP events from the past few years. He then shows the dignitaries gathering, Mayor Bloomberg’s speech, and the pier’s athletic field in use.
