The building at 99 Plymouth Street, now home to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Environmental Education Center, public restrooms, and a community space, was formally a NYC Department of Environmental Protection building

In 1946, demolition of the 19th-century brick warehouses along Furman Street began as to make way for the cantilevered Brooklyn Queens Expressway.

The Brooklyn Bridge opened on May 14th, 1883. It was the first bridge to cross the East River, the largest suspension bridge built at the time, and was called the “eighth wonder of the world.”

Brooklyn Bridge Park published its Master Plan in 2000.

Construction of the park began in January 2009.
