The Brooklyn Bridge repair work is ongoing, requiring that Gotham Park reverts to public use in stages.
We will have 6 main outdoor sections stretching from Park Row to South Street, providing a diversity of outdoor experiences responding to the specific character of each section.
We envision The Vaults would be converted to public use, ideally a New York Public Library combined with a Brooklyn Bridge Museum housing a collection of documents and artifacts from the design and construction of the Bro
There are two minor areas which we are advocating to open for public access NOW. Comprised of 50% of the Small Banks and the Elevated Basketball Courts - this is space that has not been actively utilized for the current repair work on the Bridge.
The Basketball Courts in particular are on an elevated level, and separated by an elevated walkway, from the main construction area.
