Work almost complete on park-like entrance to Brooklyn Bridge

See this story at BrooklynPaper.com.

By Lauren Gill

Brooklyn Paper

Put it in park!

The Brooklyn Bridge will get a safer and more inviting gateway when the city transforms a dangerous intermingling of cars, bicyclist and pedestrians at Tillary Street into an oasis of trees, plants, bike paths, walkway, and happier tourists and commuters a welcome upgrade to the barren stretch riders and cyclists now must use to get to and from the bridge, according to the local community boards leader.

I think there were many people who looked at the status quo and said, This is the main entrance to Brooklyn, this is not particularly grand, said Rob Perris, who is Community Board 2 district manager. They wanted to make something that was aesthetically more attractive.

The new entrance on Adams Street will include separate pedestrian and bike lanes widened from 14-feet to 16-feet across. Cyclists will ride on an asphalt lane for a smoother ride while pedestrians will stroll on concrete.

Both sides of the pathway will be lined with trees and flowers, an improvement from the span lined with dingy taupe railings and ugly concrete barricades.

Currently, pedestrians and cyclists using the bridge traverse a brutalist pathway known as the cattle chute surrounded by traffic and exhaust. Those leaving the bridge are left at a fenced off slab where heavy traffic from Tillary Street whizzes by, creating an stressful and dangerous situation for locals and out-of-towners visiting the boroughs most-beloved spectacle.

Nearly 29,000 pedestrians and more than 3,000 cyclists cross the bridge each day, according to city data, and officials says the new designs will make the trip safer for both of them.

The project is designed and built to create a safe environment to accommodate the volumes of bicyclists, vehicular traffic, and pedestrians, said Shavone Williams, who is a spokeswoman for the Department of Design and Construction, the agency overseeing the revamp.

Along with Adams Street, the city is installing new bike lanes on the sidewalk running along Tillary Street that will improve access to the spiffy gateway. The spruced up entrance will also boast a two-story bronze sculpture of an arm with the hands index finger pointing to the sky by artist Hank Willis Thomas on Tillary and Adams streets.

Members of Community Board 2 had various reactions to the street appendage, but Perris (a recent guest on Brooklyn Paper Radio) said that people should just wait and see it for themselves before forming an opinion.

As someone who enjoys public art it is always a different experience to see art in person than it is to see a representation of art, he said. I would encourage people to hold their judgments until it is actually installed.

In other Brooklyn Bridge news, the other side of it is still lands in Manhattan, at the so-called City Hall.

A Jewish hipster haven in the heart of Chabad’s Brooklyn territory

Soon after Nechama Levy moved to Brooklyn five years ago, she opened a bicycle repair shop. The spacious, high-ceilinged store was just down the street from a new pub with exposed brick walls.
Kitchen 21 Brings Golden Age Glamour Back to the Coney Island Boardwalk

After an almost century-long fall from gracefrom NYCs premiere, upscale seaside resort and destination, to end-of-the-line depositary of sand-buried crack vials and louche carny holdovers like Shoot-the-FreakConey Island is well on its way to a full-blown resurgence (see the heralded return of Feltmans, the true forefounder of the Brooklyn hot dog).

It helps that the boardwalk remains littered with the landmarked shells of formerly grand buildings such as the Ford Amphitheater-adjacent complex that used to house Childs. Painstakingly restored by Legends Hospitality (Yankee Stadium) and Craveable Hospitality Group (of David Burke Kitchen), the turn-of-the-century expanse of beachside real estate is now enticingly occupied by Kitchen 21a collection of five interwoven restaurant concepts occupying a 150,000-square foot space.

And while you wont be turned away for donning a towel, each sector stands in stark, cultivated contrast to the assembly of fast food vendors and purveyors of yard cupped cocktails clogging the amusement park part of the beach.


The Parachute Bar


Set against arched windows framing Coney Islands iconic Parachute Jump, this sprawling bar spans the length of the restaurant, and boasts local spirit-based cocktails (a Not Your Fathers Egg Cream with Industry Vodka, and a Brooklyn 75 with Green Hook Ginsmith Beach Berry Gin,) as well as small production cans and bottles and 32 craft beers on tap.


Community Clam Bar


A must for any beachside locale, this is your destination for flights or growlers of beer (regulars are encouraged to bring their own in for refills), paired with panko-crusted oysters, mahi mahi tacos, lobster rolls on brioche buns, and the signature Raw Bar In A Box, a dry ice-chilled collection of littlenecks, local oysters, shrimp cocktail and cracked lobster, accompanied by pots of beet horseradish and pink peppercorn mignonette.


Test Kitchen


An in-house incubator for new dishes (to flesh out an established roster of grilled duroc pork porterhouse, surf n’ turf burgers, white clam casino pizza, and kale salad with marcona almonds and blue cheese), the Test Kitchen will also host a regular pop-up chef series, and collaborate with visiting winemakers, brewmasters and mixologists.


Coney Island Café

Sun and sand worshipers can avail themselves of this grab-and-go, quick service lounge and café offering coffee and breakfast items for early risers, and low key, beachy eats for the bikini-clad lunchtime crowd. Think arugula salad with summer melon, spinach and mushroom empanadas, and Mediterranean chicken wraps filled with feta, cucumber and olive tapenade.

Boardwalk & Vine

Not only does the view rival that of the nearby Wonder Wheel, you can keep your feet planted firmly on the ground (and your hands grasped around goblets of proprietary Vintage 21 wines, or crispy, teriyaki-glazed duck wings) at this ocean-abutting rooftop bar, perched high above the boardwalk.
