Where is our park?

One of the biggest issues in Greenpoint and North Brooklyn is what locals call Bushwick Inlet Park, located on Franklin Avenue near N14th Street. It’s a 28-acre stretch of land on that the Greenpoint waterfront that was a negotiated deal between the community and the City of New York.

The negotiation came at a time when then-Mayor Michael Michael Bloomberg had thought the city would get the Olympics, therefore needing this area to host some events.

A decade later, there is no park.

Although the protests have been on the down low since late last summer, the issue will soon be heating up. It continues to be a defining issue among Greenpoint residents.
