Good news for those eager Greenpointers eyeing Transmitter Park. The NY Post reported that the 1.6-acre park will be open to the public this Saturday. Under construction since 2010, the park features a new pier at the end of Kent Street, a children’s playground, a riverfront esplanade and tons of open space. This is the first actual park to result from the green space promised to North Brooklyn in 2005 after the city rezoned the waterfront. (The city also just announced plans to transform 65 Commercial Street into a park; Bushwick Inlet Park is still under construction.) Residents and local pols are wondering why the park didn’t open sooner in the summer considering the space looked complete months ago. The Post even said residents started breaking in to spend time there. A recreational pier planned for the park won’t be open for a few more months and the city still has plans to convert the former transmission towers onsite into a cafe with public restrooms. Can’t wait to see this space in action!
