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. The Pier 1 section, according to Curbed NY, "includes fields of green, waterfront promenades, a playground and the very cool 'Granite Prospect' stairway to nowhere that will soon become one big pileup of lovey-dovey couples queuing up to take wedding photos."
