Brooklyn may be out to steal Silicon Valley’s thunder as the nation’s biggest tech hub.
There are plans for a $3 billion “tech triangle” that will continue to lure firms to the borough, where revenue is estimated to hit nearly $6 billion by 2015.

The project also calls for green, park-like spaces, pedestrian and bike walks.
The plans are ambitious for sure.
One planner envisions an open space between Columbus Park and Cadman Plaza that “could have the elegance of a Parisian promenade.”
