The Columbia Street Waterfront may be looking a lot more like Brooklyn Bridge Park in coming years, The Post reports. After the extensive street repair work finishes up in the neighborhood and space frees up from the DOT, the city is planning green space, a park and a dog run on a 1.7-acre parcel of waterfront land. It will hopefully be a part of the 14-mile greenway connecting Newtown Creek to the Shore Parkway Greenway. Preliminary drawings from the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (pictured) propose open space with gardens, a bike rent and repair shop, a concession stand and seating area, and a sculpture garden. Although the end of street construction is still years away, it’s still nice to think about improvements to this stretch. A meeting about the proposal is happening tonight, and you can RSVP for it here.
