Yesterday Pier Five opened up to the public, and we went down to check it out in person. As you may have guessed, it’s another fantastic addition to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The three astroturf fields are bounded by a promenade with views of the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island, and downtown Manhattan. As we mentioned yesterday, there’s also a large picnic area, with lots of seating and Hibachi-style grill tops, right along the water. Also: plenty of bike parking, two modest children’s playgrounds, and all-around landscaping. Click through for lots of pictures. Did anyone check it out yesterday or today?
