    We sat in the park after our bridge walk and took in the Manhattan skyline. Great place to relax and gaze at the views.  more »

    The park is the best way to get a great view of the bridge, I love the photos of the bridge I did here.  more »

    We arrived here with the East River Ferry and we stopped at the Park to take pictures at the Brooklyn Bridge, which from this perspective deserves it! The park with a short walk you reach Dumbo, a quiet neighborhood with nice restaurants for lunch.

    Awesome park that overlooks the city, as well as offering a view of the Statue of Liberty. Beautiful with many good food locations in the area. During any time in the summer it will be packed. Activities often happen here and the area is constantly growing. The surrounding area is nice as well with train stations nearby so travel to the location is fairly easy.

    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.

    This is a must visit for anyone spending more than a couple of days in New York. I especially recommend getting the subway to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall or Fulton Street and walking across Brooklyn Bridge at twilight before descending into the park. The atmosphere is very chilled and tranquil compared to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. There are bars, Cafes and facilities around the park. One of he best views of Manhattan.

    Crowded but there are so many amenities. There are the many sports that you can play - from the three full soccer fields and beach volleyball to the long walk and bikeway. There are dozens of free to use grills. There is also the beautiful view of downtown Manhattan. This is a great spot to enjoy with friends and family.

    I love visiting this park. It has a great view and good amenities. Not close to home, but it is worth the travel. The only thing is that parking is sparse, so either you are going to pay or take mass transit here.

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.
