Brooklyn Greenway Will Fight Stormwater Surges as Nature Does
Part of a long-term plan for beautifying and bracing NYC, the project will offer a naturally enforced path along waterfront
After years of planning, Brooklyn is set to receive a lengthy stretch of new greenway for its residents’ enjoyment. As the project’s plans make clear, however, the added green space will also serve to protect the borough from rising water levels related to storms and other effects of climate change.
Released last week, the report conveys collaborative research and planning for the project from the NYS Department of State, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI), multidisciplinary design and planning firm WE Design, and environmental engineering and planning firm eDesign Dynamics.
