Describes an intensive period of planning and construction – and the beginning of an equally intensive period of controversy and public debate. The introduction of new financial strategies, reports of findings from structural, economic and environmental impact studies, and the public presentations of a revised Master Plan and the General Project Plan of the newly recruited architectural design team generated disillusion and dissent among some representatives of the community (including a number of early supporters).

Keywords:   Michael Van Valkenburgh, Wendy Leventer, General Project Plan, Empire State Development, One Brooklyn Bridge Park
