By the 1970's, the Brooklyn piers had become a wasteland on the New York City waterfront. Today they are a stunning park that is enjoyed by countless Brooklynites and visitors from around the world. A History of Brooklyn Bridge Park recounts the grassroots, multi-voiced, and contentious effort to transform Brooklyn's defunct piers in the mid-1980s into a beautiful, conscientiously designed park.
