New York State Parks & Rec 
Opened in 2007, this 7-acre park is built on the former site of the Brooklyn Eastern District Railroad Terminal. It was once proposed to become a waste transfer station, but NAG (Neighbors Against Garbage aka Neighbors Allied for Good Growth) took up the cause and helped block that plan. NYS Parks department stepped in and the East River State Park was created. 
The location is a popular destination for viewing the Williamsburg Bridge and midtown Manhattan skyline. 
During the summer, there are many outdoor concerts that take place. 
The park is often referred to by its nickname: Williamsburg Waterfront.
