Brooklyn Banks Construction Update

According to the Gothamist everything to the left of the red line will be blocked.

Updates on the construction of one of New York City’s most legendary spots, the Brooklyn Banks, have been confirmed. Originally set to take place this month, it seems as if the banks will be barely skateable if at all, coming this January. “The unofficial skating area will be closed due to the DOT’s multiyear bridge rehab project…Starting on Jan 15th until 4-6 months later, both overpasses that go over the banks area will be covered and painted (pretty much entire banks area from Pearl to Rose streets will be closed and off limits). Once overpasses are painted (approx summer 2010)- the north ramp (ramp furthest away from the bridge itself) will be uncovered and the area that is not used for staging will be open. 2014 – entire banks area will be open again” – Gothamist.
