About the Project:

Erie Basin Park is located in the once isolated and troubled Red Hook section of Brooklyn. Previously, the New York Shipyard, had completely closed off the waterfront from the neighborhood. Erie Basin Park provides public access to the waterfront and is a significant contributor to a community renaissance. The Park represents a model of public/private partnerships transforming abandoned waterfront properties. The result has been the creation of one of the most significant waterfront parks in New York City.
