BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK
Supporting Our Backyard Playground
IN THE PARK
As a result of debris falling from the Manhattan Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation (BBPDC) erected a sidewalk bridge and scaffolding structure, which decks over multiple pathways, public sidewalks, and a rock climbing area. While we appreciate BBPDC's concern for safety, it is time for MTA and DOT to address the problem of falling debris so the scaffolding can be removed.
Matt Warren, DAC's representative on the Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Advisory Council, has been championing this issue. In August 2018, he sent this letter -- co-signed by over 100 individuals -- to our government officials to advocate for permanent solution.
A wonderful new space opened up in 2022!
Named in honor of Emily Warren Roebling, who is known for her work ensuring the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge.
This section adds two acres to the park. The plaza completes the link from the Jay Street entrance all the way to the Brooklyn Bridge.
