Pier 1 of Brooklyn Bridge Park opened today

Pier 1 is the first of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s six pier-to-park segments to open.  This segment really emphasizes the park’s views of Lower Manhattan as a primary asset: key features include a series of newly constructed rolling hills, a massive staircase (made of of granite reclaimed from the demolition of the Roosevelt Island Bridge), several lawns, a 1,300-foot waterfront promenade and a small playground.  The Pier 6 section of the park, near the western end of Atlantic Avenue, is scheduled to open later this year.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy has launched a new website for the park and opened a Flickr group for public photo sharing.
