Greenway Change along Brooklyn Bridge Park

Greenway Change along Brooklyn Bridge Park

A new temporary path is currently being built with the park.

Furman Street is now a 2-way roadway, providing north-south access along the waterfront.  As a result, the bike path connecting Pier 1 and Pier 6 has been removed.  Brooklyn Bridge Park and DOT are planning on opening a temporary path by the end of next week.  In the meantime, please be careful along this stretch of the Greenway and either ride with traffic or walk your bike along the sidewalk.
