Name Brooklyn Bridge Park
Date 1984
Description of the project Brooklyn Bridge Park is not like other city parks. It exists only because of an extensive planning and community advocacy and it operates through a hybrid public-private model. After the close of its cargo operations in 1984, the plan was to sell that area for commercial development, but not-for-profit organization Friends of Fulton Ferry Landing fought for space and conceived the idea of the park.

A continuation of this battle is the constant conflict among private development and plans to establish affordable housing, which continues to divide neighbors and neighborhood associations.
