  • Nice views of the freedom tower, lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. The day we went there was a festival going on - food trucks, music etc.  more »
  • Obviously, it's a very scenic place to visit, with Manhattan right across the river, and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges right there. Great walk along the water, playground for the kids, carousel. ...  more »

  • One of the best places to see New York City's famed skyline and of course, the iconic Brooklyn Bridge itself. The Statue of Liberty can also be seen in the distance. Easily accessible by public transport. Be there between morning and noon if you are looking to take good photos of the skyline and water because the sun will illuminate the entire area nicely.
  • This is definitely one of the places that you need to visit if you are visiting the city. This park offers exclusive use of lower Manhattan that you will not get from anywhere else. I highly recommend that you visit during sunset as it is the time when the city is most beautiful. You will not regret going here. I would recommend putting it at the end of a Brooklyn trip if you are in fact visiting New York. Make a day of it.
  • Having grown up in Brooklyn, it's wonderful to see how they have revitalized the waterfront. You will have great views here of the NY skyline, as well as the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Enjoy a picnic on the grass or take a ride on the lovely restored carousel.
  • Loved this spot for some landscape photos of Manhattan. We walked from the Manhattan bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge. We passed by some cafes and ice cream shops as well as the carasol between both bridges. Fantastic view and great place for photos, having with friend or family, or even a jog... and I'm not a runner but with a view like that I'd do it. We made our way towards the pillars which were one of my favorite views.
  • I love this park! It's even more prettier in the night time. You'll see a lot of people out with their cameras out capturing the scenery. It's a perfect place to walk around and sit and relax. They have a carousel and a roller skating rink there too 😍
