  • It is located under the famous Brooklyn Bridge Park. At dusk when the visit and was very beautiful night view of Manhattan across the East River. Park inside the Park are decorated with illuminations, snow remains very cold despite was visited by many tourists. Close to the Metro station, so visit. Enables users to view panoramic view rather than look up at the building in Manhattan, and also think of different views.

  • One of my regular walks is Brooklyn Bridge Park. For many years, it was a reliably quiet and solitary walk. This is still true much of the time, but there are equally lively and crowded days, too, esp...  more »

  • Perhaps one of my most favorite places to visit, Brooklyn Bridge Park is trendy and yet quiet in some places. You just have to walk and find these places for yourself. The view of the NYC skyline is wonderful, especially during sunset. And the majesty of the Brooklyn Bridge towering over you is a sight to behold. A lot of couples come here to take their wedding photos and I could see why. It's a pretty little park and perfect for photo shoots.
  • A really impressive park, probably the best view of NYC to be found. The park is large and attractive with lots of different activities to enjoy. There are a few great restaurants as well. Taking a trip the park can be fun as well. My favorite ways are walking over the Brooklyn Bridge or taking the ferry from Manhattan.
  • Wow. I had no idea how beautiful Brooklyn would be. I frequent Manhattan and am a lover of it so when we decided to stay in Brooklyn for our most recent girls trip I was a little nervous. We walked from our hotel (1 brooklyn bridge which was hands down amazing) through the park and then brunched in Soho. It was such a lovely walk through the park we nearly missed our brunch reservation. Highly highly highly recommend 👍
  • This is one of the most memorable and scenic places that I've experienced in NYC. The pictures that I captured are awesome! So many people enjoying the New York esc. The best thing is that it costs nothing to expedience; other than your time ;-)
  • Creepy post-industrial docks with a trendy Park Slope feel. Get your kicks dodging yoga moms and FiDi bros on the bike path or just spend a chill hour on a bench soaking up those waterfront vibes homeless person style. All in all a must visit NYC spot.

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.
