Real Estate brokers and agents marketing and selling properties in Downtown Brooklyn will be happy to know about a great new outdoor amenity coming to the neighborhood.

Brooklyn Strand is what mayor Bill Di Blasio is calling 21 acres of underused green space stretching from Borough Hall to Brooklyn Bridge Park. It will be a "spiffy" new park according to Mr. Di Blasio.

The Strand includes Columbus Park (adjacent to Borough Hall), Cadman Plaza Park (to its North containing the War Memorial), Walt Whitman Park (on the other side of Cadman Plaza East, including the Office of Emergency Management building), the Korean Veterans Plaza and several empty municipal lots and lawns.

Tucker Reed, president of the Downtown Brooklyn partnership pointed out that the redone park stretching through the heart of Downtown would serve as an amenity to new employees that the new Tech Triangle firms are sure to attract.

 In another blog dated February 17th of this year we had mentioned the importance New York City is placing on a Brooklyn Tech Triangle which includes the neighborhoods of Dumbo, The Brooklyn Navy Yard and Downtown Brooklyn, New York. The city hopes to attract many new tech startup and established companies to these neighborhoods.
