A Sign

June 13, 2009

Bushwick Inlet Park Sign

Despite the recent news that $57 million dollars will be cut from the Parks Department  North Brooklyn construction budget for the next 6 years, I couldn’t help but feel giddy when I rode by by the stretch of land on Kent Avenue between N.9th and N.10th Street today to see signs of construction activities and upturned soil.

Construction on Phase I

Construction on Phase I

Yes, it appears, Phase I is underway!  I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the Parks Department has installed an informative sign, telling people about the Future Bushwick Inlet Park, unfortunately it does not mention that the park will be larger than the lot currently under development (Phase I &II) between N. 9 & N 10th St.  It does include  a new projected date for completion : Phase I( Soccer Fields) Winter 2010 and Phase II (Building & Shoreline) – Winter 2011.  I am in an optimistic mood, so here’s hoping this sign and upturned earth mean progress and we won’t see a new projected completion date next summer.
