Community members and local politicians gathered at Brooklyn Bridge Park today to celebrate the expansion of Piers 3 & 4 Uplands. BBP President Regina Myer and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz presided over the opening of the new section, which includes the final connection of the parkwide greenway, landscaping, expansive lawns, a granite terrace area and the first of the Park’s sound attenuating hills.
