Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 5

Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg presided over the opening of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5, the latest addition to Dumbo’s ever-evolving urban playground. The five-acre space, once a shipping hub, boasts a 500-foot-long pier with picnic tables and grills, a surrounding esplanade, a fishing area and three multiuse sports fields. The Squibb Park Bridge, a 244-foot pedestrian walkway from Brooklyn Heights down to the park, is set to debut in the next few weeks. Click through our slide show for photos of the new spot, replete with fresh grass and stunning views of lower Manhattan across the river. Is it spring yet?

Wonderful development! my only concern is the rules for grilling. One rule says first come first serve and then the next rule says one hour on grill if others are waiting. Really , this is confusion waiting to happen. If a family is grilling first then they should not have to stop grilling in order for another family to grill. Food temperatures of uncooked food will change risking food poison. I Believe that first come first serve policy is better and no one should have to stop grilling because others are waiting. IF PEOPLE CAN WORK TOGETHER ON TIME AND SPACE THAN THAT'S SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DISCUSS BETWEEN PARTIES.
