What is going in the big clearing area between the New Realtors Office/School and the Lincoln Apartments on Kenilworth?

I like the divided/protected cycle track on Pearl Park Way.....one day, this will all magically link up to the rail trail, and the LSC Greenway and rail trail will be safely connected.

That fly-thru made a lot more sense when I finally looked up that they were connecting Pearl Street through. 

That was very helpful, thank you. 

I've always had trouble understanding the layout of that area in my head, but after seeing the history and some old maps, now I know why: it was part of Brooklyn, so they razed everything and replaced it with mega-blocks of government buildings and housing projects (before I-277 this and 2nd Ward were clearly considered the same area).

It is pretty heart breaking to see that old street grid around Baxter St and Pearle Park Way and know it was filled with homes.
