"A Park Grows in Brooklyn" is a three-minute historical and educational film produced for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Coalition (now the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy), sponsor of the "Movies with a View" Summer Film Series taking place annually on what is presently known as the Empire Fulton Ferry Lawn. Crafted during the Spring/Summer of 2000, the film includes historical images and artistic renderings of the Twin Towers along the Manhattan skyline, just one year prior to September 11, 2001. Today, One World Trade Center and the Brooklyn Bridge Park live and grow. (Film accompanied by a recording of Edvard Grieg's Stimmungen (Moods), Op. 73 - IV. Folketone.)
