Mayor Bloomberg had this great idea, that every New Yorker should be within a ten minute walk to a public park. Love it. And since this summer, we've got a new person in charge of making this vision happen -- and developing, protecting, and invigorating Brooklyn's parks. Read more here about the new Parks Commissioner, Veronica White.
If you have an idea for what should be happening in Brooklyn's parks, sound off here. Because with more and more people moving to the borough, more bikes on the roads, more food festivals in and near parks, more development of waterfront areas, and just greater utilization of our green spaces, we want to make sure that our parks are as well tended as possible.
And, with more waterfront areas under development, Ms. White is likely to leave a lasting imprint on Brooklyn of the early 21st century.
