I discovered the Brooklyn Bike Park while exploring the Williamsburg
section of Brooklyn late in the afternoon of a June day last year.
The park is located along the East River just a bit upstream of the Williamsburg Bridge.
Here, a rider negotiates one of the park's many steeply banked berms.
The building in the background is the old Domino Sugar refinery, dating from 1882. It stopped
operations in 2004, and is now part of a redevelopment to include apartments and office space.
