The officials in charge of the new $350 million Brooklyn Bridge Park know what New Yorkers want — and that’s an outdoor wine bar and plaza along the water. The Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation, which is overseeing the 1.7-mile Dumbo park until the city takes over, is planning a plaza with four concessions at Pier 1, one of which will be an elevated wine bar, the group told Community Board 2’s Parks and Recreation Committee last night. “We’re looking for concessions that cater to everyone — and one of the biggest questions we got during the design phase was, ‘Where can I drink publicly in your park?’” said David Lowin, a vice president with the corporation. The plaza, bordered by Old Fulton Street, the waterfront and the Brooklyn Bridge, would also include fare like hot dogs and snacks. The corporation has already sought proposals for Pier 1 and plans to do so for Pier 6, which would have two more cart concessions plus a restaurant with rooftop access, in the coming weeks. Concessions at both piers would open by July. [Brooklyn Paper]
