WNYC Transmitter Park was opened to the Greenpoint-Williamsburg communities in 2012 as a local waterfront destination. Once the working home of the WNYC radio transmission towers, the park is now a stunning green space, with both natural areas and also places for fishing, play, and active recreation.
The park includes an overlook to the south, seating, and a waterfront esplanade. The center of the park includes a large, open lawn with a separate children’s play area featuring a nautical theme to reflect the site’s context. It also includes a spray shower and nature gardens. A pedestrian bridge has been restored as a wetland accessible to visitors. At the end of Kent Street is a recreational pier, featuring opportunities for fishing and a view of the Manhattan skyline and East River.
