Our team at Streets of New York 411 regularly update the readers of our electronic newsletter with awesome events that are produced by our clients, but his one is noteworthy. The management and staff is making a sincere request that you support this event which will expand an outdoor space that our families and others utilize and enjoy regularly.
By now every New Yorker and even tourists from around the globe knows about the world class public space, Brooklyn Bridge Park but not many people know that the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy has worked for over 30 years to bring Brooklyn Bridge Park to life. They started out as grassroots advocates, bringing together residents, government, and local supporters to transform an abandoned waterfront into the park you see today that is filled with all kinds of great free programs that appeal to park visitors, no matter what their interests. Since 2000, more than 1,000,000 visitors have enjoyed the Conservancy’s free programs in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
So what better way to acknowledge one of the best public spaces in all of New York City than to join them for their third annual Brooklyn Black Tie Ball and After Party on October 8th? It’s a chance to have a great evening filled with food, dancing, music and the one of the most spectacular views, that of the lower Manhattan skyline from Pier 2 in Brooklyn Bridge Park; all while to the Conservancy that keeps the park bustling with the free, high quality programs we have all come to enjoy like the Movies With A View series, Pilates fitness classes, and Kayak Camp.
During this event, the Conservancy will be honoring Michael R. Bloomberg, three-term Mayor of New York City and founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies. As New York City’s 108th mayor, Mike Bloomberg led a major expansion of the City’s parks, adding more than 850 acres of new parkland, much of it along the waterfront, and opening new recreational facilities in all five boroughs. At the end of Mayor Bloomberg’s term in 2013, 76% of New Yorkers lived within a 10-minute walk of a park or playground. Mike Bloomberg has been the driving force in the creation of Brooklyn Bridge Park. His strong leadership as Mayor was essential to the Park’s transition from once abandoned piers to a green and vibrant space enjoyed by New Yorkers and visitors from around the world.
