If you’ve been to Downtown Brooklyn recently you know that the area is absolutely exploding with new development, much of it apartment and condominium towers. There’s even a proposal for a skyscraper in Brooklyn, which would be the tallest building in the country outside of Manhattan and Chicago.

For a little context on the people working on aiding this growth, Crain’s caught up with the president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, Regina Myer.

“We are working on two specific park projects that should make a difference: BAM Park on Lafayette Avenue and Willoughby Square between Gold and Duffield streets,” Myer told Crain’s. “We can change the landscape in terms of open space, pedestrian activity and connectivity between Downtown Brooklyn and the Navy Yard. I’m also excited about 
New York University’s expansion in the MetroTech area.”

There’s more in the interview, which is worth a quick read.
