October 9 @ 6:00 pm 10:00 pm

Set against the stunning backdrop of the glittering Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball promises an enchanting evening at New York City’s most breathtaking waterfront park. The evening, hosted by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, promises to be a celebration of joy, wonder, and exploration.

This year, the Conservancy is proud to honor three remarkable Park champions who came together to realize a long awaited dream of an expansive Park on the Brooklyn waterfront: Regina Myer, President of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership; Nanette Smith, Senior Program Manager, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Brooklyn Bridge Park Landscape Architects Michael Van Valkenburgh and MVVA. Brooklyn Bridge Park would literally not be here without their leadership. 

Supporters of the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball are the champions of the Conservancy’s commitment to providing free access to its vibrant array of cultural offerings, invigorating fitness endeavors, and enriching educational experiences for all New Yorkers. Tickets and Tables on sale now.
