This Week: Better Access to Brooklyn Bridge Park, Part Two

Last week we reported on NYC DOT’s set of pedestrian and bike improvements for Brooklyn’s Old Fulton Street, the gateway to the northern end of Brooklyn Bridge Park. This week, DOT will present a second piece in the plan for improved access to the new park — improvements to the western end of Atlantic Avenue where it meets Pier 6. In a holiday-shortened week, that’s the only major event on the Streetsblog calendar.

  • Thursday: DOT shows Brooklyn CB 6 proposed safety improvements for Atlantic Avenue where it meets Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6. 6:30 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
