Brooklyn Bridge Park has become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike in New York City. The park offers spectacular views of New York Harbor, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Lower Manhattan skyline. But, not too long ago, the area was an industrial wasteland. A new book explores how the eyesore became an urban wonderland. It’s called Brooklyn Bridge Park: A Dying Waterfront Transformed. Joanne Witty co-authored the book with the late journalist Henrik Krogius. Joanne is a lawyer, environmentalist, president of the local development corporation that developed Brooklyn Bridge Park’s master plan and vice chair of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation. Joanne is our guest on this week’s Cityscape.
