ABOUT JOHN STREET

Parkland at John Street features pedestrian bridges over a tidal salt marsh, tree-lined pathways, and a 13,000-square-foot gathering lawn. A pedestrian bridge across the East River connects the park to the Jay Street Plaza and neighborhoods to the north.

Historic elements have been salvaged and reused throughout and echo the area’s industrial past. These include the footings of industrial buildings found during construction and original Belgian block and railroad tracks from the Jay Street Plaza. A tidal channel allows the East River to enter and flow through the park as it is crossed by pedestrian bridges.
