Parks Parks Everywhere!
Just days after the opening of the new Erie Basin Park by Ikea, a short walk South from the Columbia St. Waterfront District, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy has announced that a temporary park will also be opened for the summer at Pier 1, part of the future Brooklyn Bridge Park to the North of the neighborhood.
The park, located on the East River at the base of Old Fulton St and Furman St, boasts beautiful harbor views, first time public access, a close up look at the temporary "New York City Waterfall" installation by Olafur Eliasson, a cafe, sand, grass, picnic tables, and more. The plans of the space by by Diand Studio, as seen above, also show what looks like a giant sandbox!
The park opened on June 26th and will remain open until Labor Day
