Welcome to BRBRbrooklyn! Whether you are pedaling to the shore, the store, your neighbor’s stoop, or back to your own coop, this blog is for you. Bay Ridge Bicycle Routes is an effort raise to awareness within our neighborhood and among civic groups about the activities of bicyclists in Bay Ridge and other nearby communities in southern Brooklyn.

Our neighborhood’s immediate access to the harbor, less congested street traffic, friendly atmosphere, expansive parks and flat terrain (except, of course, for the steep ridge in Bay Ridge!) makes our corner of New York City one of the most fantastic places to ride a bicycle. Whether for transportation, recreation, fun or fitness, cycling is great in Bay Ridge.

Brooklyn Greenway - How to Make a Park

If you recall from our prior post, the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway held a public visioning session about how to develop a future park space at Columbia and Kane Streets. The park will serve as one of several nodes along the completed Brooklyn Greenway.

BRBR attended the meeting last month and served as one of the facilitators at the discussion tables. It was a great night and many good ideas were heard from community members about needed neighborhood amenities, bicycle access and broad visions about identity for the park.
