Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates' 23-year story of transforming 85 acres of Brooklyn waterfront into parkland that reconnects New Yorkers to the East River

Reclaimed from 1.3 miles of New York's postindustrial waterfront, Brooklyn Bridge Park is a place for escape, recreation, and immersion in the natural world. Transforming parking lots and crumbling piers into a living ecosystem, the project is an exemplar of climate resilience, fiscal innovation, and joyful public space. This book examines Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates's process of designing a park that went from a remote possibility to an essential part of the city around it.
