Moving Forward with Brooklyn Bridge Park
August 3, 2011
Brooklyn - Today, we have taken giant steps forward to complete Brooklyn Bridge Park. The new Memo of Understanding guarantees that a long-term revenue stream is in place to pay for the park’s annual maintenance and allows the next phases of construction to move forward. For decades Brooklyn residents have dreamed of a world-class park along the waterfront. I want to thank my colleagues on the state and city level for working together to achieve the best plan and to eliminate a circle of high-rise housing surrounding the park.
