B61 has the goods on last Monday’s Brookyln Community Board 6 meeting with the city’s Econoomic Development Corporation about the future of Piers 7 through 20 in Red Hook, 120 acres that run from the Atlantic Basin to the southern edge of the future Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Features of the E.D.C. plan include a second cruise-ship terminal, hotel and convention-center space, the retention of industrial operations, a possible water-taxi expansion and, most exciting, a Conover Street expansion, which would alleviate the traffic problems that are currently causing constant congestion on Van Brunt Street due to the new Fairway and the cruise-ship terminal already extant.
