While the Brooklyn Greenway gains traction in Williamsburg, it’s also set to make progress in Red Hook. This Thursday, February 21st, the city’s Department of Transportation will present a proposal to Community Board Six’s Transportation Committee to extend the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway from Van Brunt and Summit Streets to Valentino Park. According the the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, the DoT will reveal improvements that they can act on within the year. Of course, it is part of the bigger, long-term capital project to extend a greenway all the way from Greenpoint to Sunset Park. If you’re interested in attending the meeting, it’s at 6:30 pm at Long Island College Hospital, Room A.
