Saturday, August 25th: WNYC Transmitter Park in Greenpoint Opens

Greenpoint’s WNYC Transmitter Park (West St. between Kent St. & Greenpoint Ave., Brooklyn) opens today. The new park has an esplanade, lawn space, a playground and, of course, an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline. A pier is expected to be completed this year, which will hopefully provide New Yorkers with another great option for free kayaking on the East River.
