Originally, an industrial waterfront that thrived during the first half of the 20th Century, Brooklyn Bridge Park is now being redeveloped into a major sustainable waterfront park.Located near the park is Old Fulton Street, the original landing for the ferry that linked Brooklyn to Manhattan before construction of the Brooklyn Bridge.A major part of the Park's sustainability objective is to reuse as much of the site's deteriorating structures as possible. A series of above-ground landscape elements will serve as ecological treatment systems for collected storm-water from the Park's landscape and adjacent buildings, prior to entering it's underground storage. Native vegetation, bird and marine habitats will be located around the park in a way where human impact on the new habitat will be minuscule and their visibility within the park significantly maximized. These are just some of the parks sustainability objectives.
