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, a good portion of the land for the park has not even been acquired by the City, and most of it requires significant remediation.
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.
Thanks to everyone who turned up for our Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park Meeting on Tuesday night, October 21st, 2014. We had over 50 people in attendance, many of them new faces. It was a spirited group intent on pushing the city to deliver our promised park. Stay tuned to this website for news of next steps and more events in the very near future!
