Saturday’s steady rain turned a large portion of Squibb Park’s surface into an impromptu wading pool, enjoyed by many on Sunday. Photo: Claude Scales

We still don’t know exactly what’s wrong with Squibb Park Bridge, the fancy, new, bouncy pedestrian footbridge that’s been closed for the past seven months pending a $700,000 repair job, but we do know this much: the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation (BBP) is working on it. Earlier this afternoon (03/18), your eyes-on-the-ground observed two workers in bright vests conducting what […]
Whatever structural engineering issues are keeping the fancy $5 million Squibb Park Bridge (aka “Bouncy Bridge”) closed until spring must be pretty serious: repairing the distinctively bouncy pedestrian footbridge that failed after only a year will cost about $700,000, and it’s unclear when if ever the public will find out what exactly went wrong. That’s the […]
The Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation has provided us with a link to part of the visual presentation that accompanied Park Corporation VP for Real Estate David Lowin’s talk at last Wednesday’s Community Advisory Council meeting. The presentation shows comparative views (scroll to the bottom) in photos taken in 2008, before the National Cold Storage Warehouse […]
The opening of the Squibb Park Bridge, now updated with a new video by Karl Junkersfeld. Watch it after the jump.
We’ve got fresh pics of the soon-to-be-opened Squibb Park footbridge that will provide new access to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The first comes from BHB contributor Maureen Lynch, with more from Brownstoner. That webbie describes “cranes, scissor lifts and an army of riggers and engineer/construction workers against a winter daylight cerulean sky” as the already assembled […]
Following Mr. Karl’s video progress report Thursday on the Squibb Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Facebook page features its own pic sharing progress on the bridge, which will connect Brooklyn Heights to BBP: “Check out the first bridge pier being installed at the uplands of Pier 1. Looking forward to watching as Squibb Bridge is […]
Mr. J. is a fan of all things Brooklyn Bridge Park. In the video (see after the jump) he’s given us some glimpses of progress in construction of the pedestrian bridge that will connect Squibb Park, just below Columbia Heights near the path that leads from Middagh Street, with Brooklyn Bridge Park. The poured concrete […]
READ IMPORTANT UPDATE HERE. Commenter “She’s Crafty” suggested in a comment on BHB that Squibb Park be renamed Adam Yauch Park to honor the Brooklyn Heights native and Beastie Boy MC who died earlier this month at the age of 47. We couldn’t agree more. We hope you do too. A Facebook page has been […]
As seen on my morning walk today, work has begun on the pedestrian bridge that will provide access from Squibb Park, off Columbia Heights near the foot of the path that leads to Middagh Street, across Furman Street and down to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier One. As the photo shows, an opening has been made […]
