Great Park Proposal for Williamsburg near Broadway

Brownstoner has the word on this park proposal which would be built on some of the currently open space over the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

As Brownstoner points out,

"the plan is to create a park network that would serve local kids, according to a story in Architect's Newspaper. The plan is the five-years-in-the-making brainchild of Councilwoman Diana Reyna, who hopes to improve the quality of life.

I for one didn't know that noise levels from the BQE in that area are 10 times louder than traffic noise from Park Avenue in the City.

I hope it goes ahead. That part of Williamsburg is not the one Manhattanites(and others) project their hipster musings on, and the residents of that immediate area really could use some urban renewal with them in mind.
