– Bring On the Boats: New Marina in Brooklyn Bridge Park Is Just About Ready to Open

April 11, 2016

The city’s first new marina in decades is about to open in Brooklyn Bridge Park, nestled between Piers 4 and 5 on the park’s south side. The benefits of the marina are numerous, but construction of the 8-acre, $28-million One°15 Brooklyn Marina wasn’t easy.

Brownstoner caught up with marina co-founder and General Manager Tim O’Brien to talk about what locals can expect to see at this new maritime mecca, and about the surprising difficulties of reconnecting Brooklyn to its waterfront.
