Walking Home From Court Street Station or Montague, now easier!

So I always wondered why that bit of space (Columbus Park, sort of similar to that one in the Manhattan Chinatown, but not really) that connects through Borough Hall and the courthouse around the Court Street station was blocked off (check out the photo to familiarize yourself) to cars and I had to dilly dally down the steps to the left, etc.

The walkway is now free again to pedestrians, because state Supreme Court judges who were parking there finally have their even-more-secure parking lot back. The stroll might not be that much better, but it's nice to know that the space made for pedestrians can keep on being for pedestrians. It's New York, it's Brooklyn, give us the walking power!

Picture this, but without the 'no-walking' sign. And that woman on the cell phone might be walking through it.
