Pier 5 opens at Brooklyn Bridge Park
Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg presided over the opening of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5, the latest addition to Dumbo’s ever-evolving urban playground. The five-acre space, once a shipping hub, boasts a 500-foot-long pier with picnic tables and grills, a surrounding esplanade, a fishing area and three multiuse sports fields. The Squibb Park Bridge, a 244-foot pedestrian walkway from Brooklyn Heights down to the park, is set to debut in the next few weeks. Click through our slide show for photos of the new spot, replete with fresh grass and stunning views of lower Manhattan across the river. Is it spring yet?
