WARNING: maritime geekiness ahead. No clash of the bike-and-car cultures in this story, nor will this article chronicle the latest battle between halal food carts and their natural direct competitors, sports bars. This post is strictly about the nerdy fun that comes recreational waterfront access, and the coalition of politicians, city employees, and non-profit groups that want to make it happen here.
That’s right, folks, it’s time to talk about 69th Street Eco Dock, slated to be constructed early this fall.
Last Thursday, the Bay Ridge branch of the Brooklyn Public Library was the setting for a community meeting to introduce some details about the Eco Dock project to the pubic, as well as to crowd-source new ideas for future use.
