New, 1 comment

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?Just in time for the scorching weather, a playground on Pearl Street is opening a new area that has a spray shower and water areas for kids to cool down. The $2.1 million expansion includes a pedestrian path to Beekman Street, additional seating areas, new play equipment, and "a rock feature referencing the sandy bluff that once existed at this site."

FORT GREENE?The Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm is nearly finished with their 45,000-square-foot expansion in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The new farm is now home to "several thousand tomato and pepper plants," and within a few weeks, greens will be harvested. There are also 30 beehives on the ground level, with more to come.
