There's a fitful, lonely beauty to this here visual evidence that construction work is indeed underway at Pier 1 of Brooklyn Bridge Park. The photograph comes via local blog Dumbo NYC, which quotes the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy thusly:
The first of 60,000 cubic yards of fill and topsoil began arriving on Pier 1 last week. This fill, which will be imported onto the site through the spring, will be used to create the grading and lawns, including a 25 foot hill, on Pier 1. Landscaping will begin in the spring, with the first section of Pier 1 slated to open winter 2009.Still up for grabs: control of the whole shebang.
