Brooklyn Bridge Park’s New John St Park Opens!
It’s the moment Jay St has been waiting for!!! On August 8, the newest and northern most point of Brooklyn Bridge Park opened to the public. The park includes a foot bridge over the East River at the end of Jay Street, new winding paths and grassy patches along the river and benches with some of the best views of both bridges around.
BBP also opened up the Main Street section of the park – which had been closed for renovation for the last year and a half. Now there’s a new plaza and seating area, a brand new dog run, a great entrance to the park on Plymouth Street and of course, public bathrooms!
