Expanded Brookyln Bridge Park Debuts

9.5-acres of the planned 85-acre expansion of Brooklyn Bridge Park opened at Pier 1 yesterday. Curbed NY has pictures.

The new park was designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation. The park will eventually stretch from Pier 6 at Atlantic Avenue to Jay Street.
