Where's Our Park?

#WheresOurPark?

In 2005, the City of New York promised the neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg a 27-acre park along North Brooklyn’s waterfront.

Almost 12 years later, tens-of-thousands of new residents have moved in, but very little of Bushwick Inlet Park had been materialized.

On November 21, 2016 this all changed! The City of New York finalized a deal with the owner of the CitiStorage site, for acquiring the final piece of the full promised park. The future is now for Bushwick Inlet Park and the community of North Brooklyn! A resounding thanks to Mayor de Blasio and to a passionate resilient coalition of Our Community, Supporting Organizations, and Our Elected Officials! Read the story.

Check out our press release.

#HeresOurPark! View a collaborative vision for the future.
