BROOKLYN - Hundreds of workers confronted the threat of climate change at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Wednesday.

The group stood alongside "Build Up NYC," a workers' coalition advocating for responsible development and good jobs.

Members say they're concerned about the long-term future of the park, especially with the possibility of rising sea levels.

In addition, workers say they want to ensure that enough is being done to save the park from future storms.
