As promised, the City started work on the soccer field portion of Bushwick Inlet Park in June. Presumably that involved some breaking of ground, though the official groundbreaking was today. The groundbreaking was attended by a bevy of pols (Mike, Joe, David), commissioners (Adrian, Amanda) and some of the neighborhood organizations that had a hand in making Bushwick Inlet Park (Community Board 1, Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park, GWAPP, NAG and OSA to name a few).

One soccer field is a long way off from the 28-acre park that the City has promised Greenpoint & Williamsburg, but the groundbreaking is a start (figuratively this month, literally last). So, yes, a reason to celebrate.
