The piers at Brooklyn Bridge Park have been popular attractions along the East River since being revitalized back in 2010, and this Thursday, two additional piers will open to the public. Pier 2 will provide park goers with five more acres of recreational space, including courts for basketball, handball, shuffleboard and bocce, as well as a full size roller skating rink (opening in late June), swings, picnic tables, restrooms and fitness equipment, while Pier 4 will offer up shoreline access for non-motorized boats to launch. (It will also presumably become an extremely popular spot to sunbathe as it is the only beach in Brooklyn that doesn’t require a 45-minute train ride.) Stay till nightfall on Thursday and you’ll also catch the last Celebrate Brooklyn! dance party of the season at Pier 1, with Afropop greats Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, and DJ collective Okayafrica Electrafrique.
