Hey BK – The Brooklyn Podcast with Ofer Cohen

Mar 15, 2020

In this episode, Ofer sits down with Sue Donoghue, President of the Prospect Park Alliance and the park administrator. 

At the nonprofit, Sue works closely with the City to help raise 11 million dollars annually and over 50 million dollars in capital funds to improve and operate Brooklyn’s 585 acre park. 

Seen as Brooklyn’s backyard, Prospect Park was built in 1867 by Central Park’s Frederick Law Olmsted. 

Much like the rest of Brooklyn, Prospect Park has experienced a rebirth. Some 30 years ago it was in disrepair but today, Prospect Park is free of cars and bustling with activity, people, bikes, athletes and programming.
