In 2005, the City of New York promised the neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg a 28-acre park along North Brooklyn's waterfront to soften the impact of a massive rezoning of the area. Almost a decade later, tens-of-thousands of new residents have moved in, but very little of Bushwick Inlet Park has materialized--and much of the land for the park has not even been acquired by the City.
Our park is in jeopardy. Our mission is to fight back, force the City to make good on its promise, and get Bushwick Inlet Park built so that North Brooklyn can finally have the open space it needs and the access to its own waterfront it deserves.
There will be a Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park Meeting on Tuesday, October 21st from 7 to 8 pm at the Bushwick Inlet Park Community Meeting Room, located on Kent Avenue at North 9th Street.
