New Ideas in Park Planning and Design: Brooklyn Bridge Park
Friday, May 24, 2:00-5:30pm (Presenters: check your presentation schedule for conflicts.)
Leader: Ruth Rae
Participants will visit Brooklyn Bridge Park—a national APA urban design award winner. Born from former industrial piers, the park boasts vibrant programming and amenities for New York City’s diverse residents and visitors. One of New York's newest public parks, the site had to be carefully negotiated to maximize value for park goers and to restart ecological function along New York’s East River edge. This workshop includes extensive walking.
Tickets are non-refundable.
