Gotham Park – also known as Brooklyn Bridge Manhattan – envisions unlocking the potential of the forgotten spaces under the iconic Brooklyn Bridge in New York, creating a new type of urban Community Park that nurtures connection, curiosity, wonder, and resilience. The Bridge is a sleeping giant - a Landmark recognized the world over – yet lands in a fenced-off, dark, underutilized parking lot. We will transform it into a neighborhood nexus connecting and strengthening our residents, businesses and communities. Built upon the spirit and foundation of the original Brooklyn Banks, we will restore the Banks while expanding public space and access to create a variety of flexible play spaces that inspire, engage and delight all ages. Woven together from the vaults, arches and land beneath the Bridge, we will build a Park for our communities, by our communities.
We're a nonprofit organization working to reopen the park below the Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan.
We need your help to realize our vision.
