In 2005, the City of New York promised the neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg a 28-acre park along North Brooklyn’s waterfront.
Almost a decade later, tens-of-thousands of new residents have moved in, but very little of Bushwick Inlet Park has materialized.
Now is our last chance. It’s clear that unless we come together as a community and send a forceful message to city hall, our promised park will never be delivered.
Community Board #1 has approved a resolution AND our city, state and federal representatives have signed onto a letter to Mayor de Blasio stating they will never support rezoning or variances for the CitiStorage property. Rather they urge the Mayor to create the full park as promised in 2005!
