Brooklyn Greenway Initiative’s “New Views 2014” at the Duggal Greenhouse
Brooklyn has become a center for sustainability and urban green technology, proving that “going green” truly does enhance our overall quality of life.
The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, the non-profit organization behind the 14-mile Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, hosted its New Views 2014 event at the Duggal Greenhouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. As New York’s newest premier venue, the Greenhouse was a natural fit for BGI’s 10-year anniversary and annual summer benefit.
Friends of BGI enjoyed a special reception and food tastings from staple Brooklyn restaurants, along with an open bar and live music – all with unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline and East River bridges.
“Soon Brooklyn will be graced with a completed, 14-mile Waterfront Greenway, which I have no doubt will be the world’s most breathtaking urban thoroughfare,” said Duggal Visual Solutions and Duggal Greenhouse Baldev Duggal, an honorary guest and speaker. “Brooklyn is perfectly positioned to become the world’s cultural capital, and this is perhaps the borough’s most impressive transformation in its history.”
The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Bay Ridge to Greenpoint with a landscaped routed for pedestrians, runners and bicyclists. Five miles are already completed including through beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park, and two more miles near the Brooklyn Navy Yard are in the design phase.
