Brooklyn folk get the green
The two renderings above show a sprawling 28-acre park being pushed for the Brooklyn waterfront, including the purchasing of sites that are currently privately owned and a massive environmental cleanup ($$$$$). (Top is from NY Magazine, bottom from Curbed). Incidentally, these would be built on top of UNDERGROUND power plants.
With all the development going on there, they're going to need a lot of park space. Compare this to LIC, where there is also a lot of development, but not much in the way of green space. And there's no shortage of power plants there.
