Brooklyn Bridge Park isn’t the only green open space developing on Brooklyn’s vast waterfront. Tomorrow their will be a meeting to discuss plans for reconstruction on Van Brunt.
While much of the neighborhood’s attention has been to the developing Brooklyn Bridge Park (and its unfortunate housing dropped into the park), there’s another public space worth discussing;
Join the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, Regional Plan Association, and your neighbors in a visioning for a new public open space on Columbia Street between Kane and Degraw Streets.
When the Van Brunt Street reconstruction and the Gowanus Flushing Tunnel construction are complete, the 80-ft deep area on the west side of Columbia Street is planned to become an open space element of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. It is one of three open space nodes that we are either designing or commencing the community visioning process.
On February 2nd, background research that has been compiled will be shared with the Columbia Waterfront community.
