On our way to Brooklyn Heights the other day, we stopped by at the construction site of the future Brooklyn Bridge Park to see what is going on. There is a lot of activity in the area, and hopefully the first section will be open this coming winter.
The fantastic 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park will stretch near mile and a half along the East River. The area so far has been completely underused and inaccessible to the public, although it offers the best views of Downtown Manhattan.
It will be a magnificent public space, with plenty of activities and even a beach (also planned are fishing piers, floating pathways, canals...a lot going on).
The park with the best view in the whole world.
