Navigating the sharp elevational drop from Squibb Park on Columbia Heights to the waterfront, the Squibb Pedestrian Bridge provides a vital access point to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The design vocabulary is equal parts bucolic and industrial, featuring domestic hardwood timber decking, galvanized steel connections, and brushed aluminum handrails with inset linear lighting and X-tend® mesh infill. The underslung suspension design is supported entirely from below the deck, thereby maintaining unobstructed views for visitors as they stroll through the treetops from park to park.
