  • A fun place to go for a walk. Get some ice cream. beautiful views of the Manhattan Skyline. you can get a delicious lobster roll, wait on line for one of America's most delicious pizzas or go take memorable photos with the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn bridge in the background. lest not forget the nearby carousel open for the kids and open grass areas open for a quick sun bath. enjoy your stay. live a little.
  • Brooklyn Bridge Park is really one of the better parks I have ever been to. It has a little bit of everything, and the layout is fantastic. With the new NYC ferry service, it is also becoming something of a waterfront hub. Though often busy, it usually only feels crowded in certain areas. The BBQ area is nice, but in high demand and has no shade. Probbaly better to picnic or BBQ at prospect park.
  • Great place to stretch out and relax. Plenty of benches to sit on, trails to walk around, people you watch, and the views are amazing. Great restaurants right nearby and street vendors offering cool drinks and snacks. Good place for children.
  • This area has really transformed into something amazing. Great date spot and good pizza in the area. Also a nice place to tan and hang in the summer. Finding a green patch in NYC is always the goal!
  • I really enjoyed my time here. It was crowded but it didn't feel like people were on top of each other. The place is huge with beautiful views of the water. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because parking was terrible. The parking garage was full and on street parking was difficult to find. It looks like the city took away some of the street parking as well so that is where my disappointment stems from. (Someone that lives near there told me if you come in the morning parking is easier to find.) Other than that inconvenience it was quite enjoyable. They have biking and basketball courts and picnic tables. A place where you can spend the day with your family and be quite pleased.
