In late June 2017, my husband and I joined a small group of curious folks in Greenpoint on a walk with The New York City Department of Transportation and the Open Space Alliance, which is now known as the North Brooklyn Parks Alliance. The purpose of our early morning adventure was to peek firsthand at the newly available space under the Kosciuszko Bridge. To my surprise, it was HUGE and full of potential! The newly erected Kosciuszko Bridge towers over four acres of possible parkland, creating a very airy yet shady futurist space full of potential below.
Since that time, it seems that it seems North Brooklyn Parks Alliance has been successful in securing several rounds of funding, and it seems as though a park along an industrial stretch of Newtown Creek may just happen. This is especially exciting, considering the news that its sister park in Sunnyside, Queens, is expected to open in spring 2022!
