I spent a part of my childhood living near Brooklyn Bridge...back then, us kids didn't venture down to the river even though our elementary school, P.S. 8, was in its shadow. The neighborhood by the waterfront was sketchy, filled with abandoned piers, parking lots and dilapidated industrial buildings. I would go home to my little apartment and dream of trees and flowers.
On Thursday, April 21 the landscape architects of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. and Jennifer Klein, Dir. of Capital Operations at Brooklyn Bridge Park will give a tour of the 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park. (click on text for info). The tour will be of the Pier 1 and Pier 2 tidal pool.
This summer, Jane’s Carousel will open, on the waterfront, housed in a Jean Nouvel pavilion.
WOW WOW WOW...I guess I should have stayed in Brooklyn.
