I have had the good fortune of touring the site prior to it's opening - see my previous post. Have also attending lectures by Michael Van Valkenburg, Matthew Urbanski, and spoke with other senior people at MVVAssociates on the making of the Brooklyn Bridge Park. All of which have added to my understanding of the many layers of design to create this space. As a native NewYorker with a Brooklyn birthright I am openly and honestly biased, but... still truly believe this will one day be looked upon by future generations with the same or greater admiration and respect that Olmsted and Vaux's Central + Prospect Park has to our generation.
