Green space is a premium in North Brooklyn and access to the fenced-off 50 Kent park is welcomed news for quarantine weary residents who are utilizing local parks as summer approaches. A petition to open 50 Kent for public recreation began circling on Monday gaining over 300 signatures.

Want to learn about the future of the Bayside oil tanks at the future Bushwick Inlet Park?
The NYC Economic Development Corporation will present on the plan to remove the oil tanks at the Brooklyn Community Board 1 Environmental Committee meeting this Thursday, June 6th at 435 Graham Ave. at 6:30 p.m. Remediation for environmental toxins at the site will be complete prior to the demolition of the tanks.

The design phase of 50 Kent is expected to be finalized this summer, and construction could potentially start next year.
