2017 has been deemed the year of change, and that's no exception for one of our city’s finest greenspaces—Brooklyn Bridge Park.
In case you haven’t noticed, the Pier 5 uplands (located between Montague and Joralemon Sts) have been under construction for a few months now. If you’re itching to see what the outcome will be, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation recently released new renderings picturing the 4.5-acre parkland.
According to Curbed NY, the renderings show new features such as a sound-dampening berm, a playground, soccer fields, a “picnic peninsula,” more waterfront seating, a boathouse for the park’s community programs and—good news—more restrooms!
Even better news: The uplands should be open in time for summer.
