It may not save you any time, but the new Squibb Park Bridge will give you some damn fine views. The $5 million pedestrian bridge quietly opened yesterday afternoon, providing a zig-zagging 400-foot-long connection between Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Structural engineer Ted Zoli designed the bridge with rot-resistant black locust timber and galvanized steel cables using trail bridge technologies that allow the structure to bounce with every step. The bouncing, combined with the barely-there (but very strong!) mesh sides, may give some a good dose of vertigo, but walking the bridge is a much nicer way to enter the park compared to dodging cars on Old Fulton Street. Above, we bring you 21 photos from our morning stroll.
