If you’ve been down to the waterfront over the past couple of months, you have noticed some major changes in the works and gotten excited about them. Finally, a few of those upgrades are finished and now open to the public. Brooklyn Bridge Park unveiled two new sections yesterday, Pier 2 and the Pier 4 beach. The 5-acre Pier 2 is fully equipped with basket ball courts, swings, handball courts, a skating rink, shuffleboard, bocce, and the breathtaking view of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge. You can also visit the Pier 4 Beach for a touch of sand between your toes. Here’s a look at what’s in store for you on your visit.
Pier 2 is open throughout the year from am to 11pm and will host various special events including FREE skating sessions on Mondays and Fridays from 3pm to 6pm, and on Sundays from 10am to noon. Did I forget to mention that it’s 60% tented? No worries about this weekend’s forecast. So, stop by this Memorial Day Weekend for some fun and you’ll be sure to stay dry.
