As the Jehovah’s Witnesses place their Brooklyn properties on the market, the group has agreed to give the city $5.5 million towards rebuilding Bridge Park 2, located below the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in DUMBO. The park has been in limbo for over a decade, and previous plans to renovate and upgrade the dilapidated site never came to fruition. The redesigned park could have a skate park and a multipurpose field, although the Parks Department will have to finalize the redesign, according to the Brooklyn Paper.
