Brooklyn Bridge Park Watch

New, 2 comments

A 30-foot-high earthen wall is protecting Brooklyn Bridge Park-goers from the atmosphere-ruining sights and sounds of the BQE. Atlantic Cities goes so far as to say that that the berm might just be the park's "best new feature," creating that coveted bucolic feel for a significant stretch of the waterfront—but not nearly all of it: "Walking along the path and passing from the section unprotected by the wall to the place where it begins is the auditory equivalent of entering into cool shade after being exposed to the glaring sun."
