Nancy Webster, executive director of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, will hold a discussion on her new book, A History of Brooklyn Bridge Park, on Monday, October 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. at powerHouse Books in Dumbo.
Co-author David Shirley and New York Daily News senior writer Sarah Goodyear will join her to talk about the book and the transformation of Brooklyn’s waterfront from derelict industrial space to one of Brooklyn’s most popular destinations.
Webster’s book covers the grassroots efforts and decades of work that went into creating the park. It is a deep dive into the many perspectives and voices that turned the defunct piers and land surrounding them into a green space for Brooklynites and visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
The book features a general history of the park, including interviews with residents, politicians, planners and other stakeholders for a holistic view on just what went into making the space what it is today.
