Work in Progress

  • Brick Repointing at 334 Furman Street

      Fall 2022 (8-12 weeks)

      Repointing is the process of renewing the external mortar between bricks. Over time, weather and age cause the mortar to deteriorate and must be replaced to protect the integrity of the building. This process is being conducted on the Park’s administrative building. Scaffolding around the building will be erected to complete the process on the upper levels.

  • Fulton Ferry Landing Decking

      Phase 1: Spring 2022
      Phase 2: Fall 2022
      Phase 3: Spring 2023

      The wood deck surface Fulton Ferry Landing is being replaced, the final look will be consistent with the current aesthetic. The replacement is being completed in phases. Access to all concessions and the NYC Ferry will remain open

  • Preventative Maintenance - Work from Barges

      Fall 2023

      Preventative Maintenance and structural work continues at Piers 2, 3, 5, and 6 to maintain the integrity of the piers for decades to come. The work is being completed by divers who work from the nearby barges, which move around the piers as work progresses.

      Read about the project in the New York Times here.

  • Pier 1 Entrance

      Spring 2023 – Summer 2024

      After 10 years of Park use, the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 1 does not serve the millions of summer visitors with the grandeur it deserves. After engaging with consultants and the Park’s original designers, a plan to renovate the Pier 1 entrance has begun. The building that currently exists at the Pier 1 Entrance will be redesigned and modified to include public restrooms.

      Safety Protocols & Guidelines

      Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is thrilled to be able to offer in-person programs. Maintaining safety is our number one priority and we are following State, City, and CDC guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19. For the well-being of our community, we ask that anyone who exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19 or has recently come into contact with someone who had COVID-19, please stay home. Any participants who do not comply with safety requirements will be asked to leave the program.

      Due to recent elevated levels of COVID transmission in the NYC area, the use of masks in crowded outdoor settings that include unvaccinated individuals is highly recommended, regardless of vaccine status. We greatly encourage that everyone wear a mask while in congested areas or interacting with those outside your household, maintain social distancing whenever possible, and practice good personal hygiene.

      To further ensure the safety of our program participants, staff, partners, and volunteers, program procedures include the following requirements:

      • All participants and staff will maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from one another.
      • All participants must read and complete our updated waiver.
      • Shared materials will be limited as much as possible. Any materials that are shared will be sanitized between each use.
      • Hand sanitizer will be provided on-site.
      • Staff are expected to wash hands regularly and self-monitor and report any symptoms. Staff are required to stay home if they have any symptoms or have recently come into contact with someone with symptoms.

      Any participants who do not comply with safety requirements may be asked to leave the program. If you have questions, please reach out to [email protected]
