On October 5, 2017 Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy honored two individuals who have contributed to the vitality of the local environment and to Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The Conservancy honored Douglas Durst, Chairman of The Durst Organization for his long-standing commitment to sustainability and the environment.
