Parks and Recreation Committee to Review Plans for the Brooklyn Strand

Brooklyn Strand

The parks committee of Community Board 2 will host Claire Weisz, a principal at WXY Studio, who will present the final plan for Brooklyn Strand, a reimagining of the open spaces from Brooklyn Borough Hall to Brooklyn Bridge Park and extending to the NYCHA developments. The plan was devised after a series of stakeholders meetings and a public session co-sponsored by Community Board 2. The project is a collaboration between the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and the office of the mayor, the city’s parks and planning departments, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. The Brooklyn Strand is one aspect of the planned Brooklyn Tech Triangle strategic plan.
