Per the language of the plan, parts of the area need an "upgraded energy and vibe," and much of Downtown Brooklyn is "burdened by outdated public spaces and neglected pedestrian corridors." The ambitious proposed solution is a sweeping public greenway, the Brooklyn Strand
, intended to connect disparate parks and green spaces in Cadman Plaza, Columbus Park, and Cumber Corner into a single entity Reed said could have "the elegance of a Parisian boulevard and the vibrance of Las Ramblas." We sort of trust that you can make any and all necessary "Très Brooklyn" jokes about this on your own.
