Brooklyn Bridge Beach? Desolate stretch will soon morph into sunbather oasis

A desolate strip of land along the East River in lower Manhattan may soon be transformed into a beautiful beach.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer put aside $8 million for the project.

The land is presently an inaccessible stretch of sand under the Brooklyn Bridge that will transform into a public beach and vibrant waterfront.

The project also include concession stands, a spot for fishing and a new kayak launch at 23rd Street that Quinn and Stringer hope will bookend eventual waterfront access from 34th Street to what they call Brooklyn Bridge Beach.
