Park Proposed for Under Brooklyn Bridge

Fri May 22, 2020 9:34 pm

Little used land underneath the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City will soon transform into a plaza that will link acres of Brooklyn parkland and cap a year's long redevelopment of what was once industrial waterfront. The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved plans to revitalize a currently fenced off lot at Water Street into a two acre pedestrian plaza and reshaping the Fulton Ferry Lawn just north of the bridge. This is the final peice of Brooklyn Bridge Park, which officially opened in 2010 and plans call for the installation of new greenery and benches, along with plenty of space for visitors to meander along the waterfront and move from one section of the park to another. The paths that will run directly under the Brooklyn Bridge took inspiration from the bridge itself with a pattern of concrete pavers that mirror the length and width of the deck above to create a cohesive space that pays homage to the iconic bridge. Officials plan to break ground in the fall and wrap up construction in December 2021. It is a very fitting project that will pay tribute to such a huge icon of New York City and America and draw more visitors to the bridge. ... n-approved
