BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK PIER 2
Brooklyn, NY (2003–2014)
Pier 2 of Brooklyn Bridge Park provides much needed athletic opportunities for Downtown Brooklyn. With facilities for basketball, handball, bocce, and shuffleboard, Pier 2 offers a court-oriented counterpoint to Pier 5’s athletic fields. The courts are sheltered by a repurposed warehouse shed. A dramatic unifying element for Pier 2, this expansive shade structure offers visitors a visceral connection to the Brooklyn waterfront’s industrial past. Other park features include a roller rink, a multi-purpose artificial turf lawn, and a promenade with sweeping views of Lower Manhattan.
