Pier 1, the completed portion of Brooklyn Bridge Park that's literally for the birds, has new benches! Made from old stuff! And that's why they're interesting. The photo reveal comes via Brownstoner, who reminds us that the wood used for the benches was salvaged from the demolished National Cold Storage Warehouse, which was razed for park construction. Park bigwigs had promised to recycle some warehouse wreckage, so if the timetables for the park's opening can't be followed, at least some promises are being kept!
