ADAPTIVE REUSE OF PIER 2 ALONG THE BROOKLYN WATERFRONT
The Brooklyn Bridge Park is an 85 acre park along the East River which has revitalized 1.3 miles of Brooklyn’s post-industrial waterfront from Atlantic Avenue to the south to Jay Street north of the Manhattan Bridge designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh & Associates. Easton Architects was the Architect of Record for the Adaptive Reuse of the circa 1958 Pier 2. The pier, once used for lumber storage, has been reused for active recreation and features amenities ranging from a hockey rink, outdoor turf field to a variety of sport courts. Pier 2 is the only pier of the six recycled for park use that retains a significant amount of its original structure.
