Hurray! Pier 6 - our neighborhood's most immediate part of Brooklyn Bridge Park, at the foot of Atlantic Avenue and Columbia Street, is opening Saturday, June 5. Pier 6 will include an incredibly fun sounding playground with special areas like Slide Mountain and Swing Valley. There will also be planted spots with marsh plants, lawns, benches and places to hang out and look at the beautiful view of the water and Lower Manhattan. Aside from all the wonderful features of the Pier one of the coolest additions is the water taxi to Governors Island, only a 3 minute ride from Pier 6 - and it's free.
