Brooklyn Bridge Park completed with opening of Emily Warren Roebling Plaza


The last section of Brooklyn Bridge Park officially opened on Thursday as officials cut the ribbon on Emily Warren Roebling Plaza, just beneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

“This opening marks the completion of Brooklyn Bridge Park as originally designed,” said Eric Landau, president of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation. “As you probably know, we broke ground on the first section of the park in 2008, opening it in 2010. Since then, we’ve been working toward the complete transformation of a former industrial waterfront into one of New York City’s most beloved public parks.”
