Update: Progress on Bushwick Inlet Parkby on
Progress on Phase Two of Bushwick Inlet Park (the block between N. 9th and 10th along Kent Avenue) continues and it looks very likely that NYC Parks’ promise to get things wrapped up by March may really happen. Workers finished hanging the final blue tiles on the front façade last week, there is grass laid on the sloping green roof and the playground equipment at the base of the roof has also been installed. If the pile of wood louvers just delivered is any indication, work to install those at the entrance should get underway this week. If you take a stroll down to the western edge of the park you’ll find the fencing that used to separate the waterfront from the athletic field is now down, allowing for an unobstructed view of the East River and beyond. Go check it out but watch out for the geese droppings! It looks like those fellas have already been taking full advantage of our newest open space!
Keep tabs on the project via a webcam focused on the green roof that updates every five minutes.
