While Cobble Hill’s borders technically end at Hicks street, Columbia Street is just one block farther and very much a big part of what makes the neighborhood so great. So, please join our friends from the
Brooklyn Greenway Initiative and Regional Plan Association, for a meeting on January 18th to make Columbia Street even greater with the planning for Columbia Waterfront Park — a new public open space on Columbia Street between Kane and Degraw Streets.
From the BGI press release…
When the Van Brunt Street reconstruction and the Gowanus Flushing Tunnel construction are complete, the 80-ft deep area on the west side of Columbia Street is planned to become an open space element of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. At last year’s visioning meeting, ideas were collected from the Columbia Waterfront residents and businesses about what sort of improvements and facilities would be most beneficial to the community.
At the report-back meeting on January 18th, we will share preliminary renderings for the park design and gather community feedback.
What: Columbia Waterfront Park Report-Back Meeting
When: Wednesday, January 18th, 2012, 6:30-8:30 PM
Where: The Union Street Star Theater, 101 Union Street
