Community group Town Square Inc. is proposing a museum for the Williamsburg or Greenpoint waterfronts. From Brooklyn Paper:
Town Square Inc. is looking for a waterfront site in Williamsburg and Greenpoint that could host a world-class facility on the scale of Manhattan’s American Museum of Natural History or the New York Hall of Science in Queens in the next six years.
“We want this to be one of the things on the list when you are a visitor to New York City,” said co-organizer Darrick Borowski. “We want you to cross the East River to come here.”
The museum will have interactive exhibits, an educational center, and scientists in residence.
“We’re looking for scientists who are interested in art and artists who are interested in science,” said Borowski. “We want to highlight the intersection between those two.”
It sounds like the project is still very much in it’s infancy, but an interesting idea nonetheless. Read more at Brooklyn Paper.
