Tells the story of a change in the BBPC’s leadership and their successful advocacy effort to incorporate the area between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges into the future park. Further south, planning begins on the piers area of the park with the hiring of an elite architectural firm to plan and oversee construction of the Park, publication of General Project Plan providing the general public with the first glimpse of what the actual Park might involve, disillusion and dissent among some early supporters and other citizen groups, and the beginnings of some negative media coverage of the Park.
