Just over two years ago details were revealed
for a pier and drastically revamped Transmitter Park for the East River end of Greenpoint Avenue, but construction has finally gotten underway this week. Since opening last summer
it's been one of the city's wilder little parks, an urban jungle and open dirt field dotted with picnic tables affording amazing views of Midtown. The park revamp, with its budget of $10-$12 million, will feature a pair of covered picnic areas, some tidal inlets, a water park for the kids and connections to planned nearby piers
for brave fishermen. Check out two park plans after the jump.
