    Very nice experience even for first commers like me. Different levels to try on every wall. It's getting very crowded after 8pm so get in as early as possible. Would definitely recommend to everyone.  more »

    Beware - this gym is becoming a scam. They used to have a reasonable priced membership, student discount, multiple guest swipes per month, and a better attitude about teaching new climbers. Now, they ...  more »

    Awesome climbing spot, staff were mad cool. The bouldering walls are second to none, tons of really interesting problems and the Beast section will definitely challenge your upper limits. Will definitely be back!

    Put in new walls recently that are both poorly constructed and poorly designed so that falling climbers frequently hit each other on certain top roping walls. The new walls are plywood with a sand coating that does not offer the traction that natural rock or most carefully constructed climbing walls do. The opening of new walls were coupled with a rate hike to make it what I believe to be the most expensive climbing gym in the western hemisphere ($32 day passes, $44 for those who need gear). All in a gym that doesn't have showers, or enough lockers to accommodate the number of people who go there. I've stopped going. I miss climbing, I don't miss BKB.

    For the expensive monthly cost you'd expect them to have better customer service and showers. Also, the facility is constantly hosting children's birthdays and "camps", so there's probably at least 20 partially supervised kids running around at any given time during the day. It often feels like bkb is a child care facility more than a climbing gym. On top of that the place is perma under construction. I recommend trying another gym if you can.

    I started climbing at BKB when they just opened. Facility is good, plenty of room and good routes, however, I encountered with rudeness and unkindness of the staff in this place and it really surprised me. It is absolutely opposite behavior and culture of the climbing community. I guess at that time they didn't have competition and could afford that behavior... may be something has changed there, i dont know, I stopped going there.

    I love this place. I bought a ten pack last year and definitely got good use out of it. Great staff and rental shoes aren't too worn.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
