City breaks ground on new waterfront park

GREENPOINT - The city?s Department of Parks and Recreation broke ground today on a new waterfront park in Brooklyn.

The groundbreaking ceremony was the first step to opening up the area to WNYC Transmitter Park. The $12-million development plan will include water recreation, a playground, a public pier and a walkway with benches and tables.

Some residents say they approve of developing the area, but are concerned about overpopulation.

The park is expected to open by 2012, according to city officials.
