Brooklyn is dedicated to creating and sustaining public spaces that build strong communities. In addition to the many public spaces currently available for citizens throughout Brooklyn, a number of public spaces are currently being transformed into vital places that highlight local assets, spur rejuvenation and serve common needs.
Albee Square, a new 17,000 square foot public space, adjacent to the historic Dime Savings Bank on Fulton Street and Bond Street, opened in June of 2011 as part of the Fulton Streetscape Project. The plaza features new seating, lighting and trees, and is the perfect place for shoppers to take a break.
Willoughby Square Park
Much like New York’s own Union Square, Willoughby Square Park offers a quiet respite amidst the bustling shopping district of Fulton Street and the nearby MetroTech Center. Willoughby Square Park is where you can find summertime jazz concerts and a place to sit and relax.
