  • Genuinely my favourite thing to do at the end of every day when I'm in NYC. A wonderful reminder of where I am with the perfect picture of Manhattan across the East River. 
  • The best views of lower Manhattan for sure. It's a decent park, but the BQE is just feet away so it's often noisy and you do smell the car exhaust. But it's a fairly nice clientele and it's kept fairl...  more »
  • I love coming to sit on the Promenade to sit and contemplate life and look out over the water. It's also a great place for my son to take pictures as photography is a hobby of his. It's really nice to...  more »

  • One of to go to places. Many benefits. Nice boardwalk along the river. Plenty of benches to sit. Watch boats cruise by and helicopters take off from the Manhattan side. Beautiful place to watch sunset and the city start to light up. One can walk down from here to the park and get closer to the waters.
  • Great view for photography. Very nice romantic walk too, good for a casual walk with a date. Make sure you check Brooklyn bridge park which is right beneath the promenade.
  • A beautiful and quiet park situated in Brooklyn Heights. It's easily one of the greatest untouched gems in all of NYC. There tends to be not many people out there despite the great views of Lower Manhattan. The quiet atmosphere makes a great place for relaxing and reading a book on a Sunday morning.
  • One of the most underrated places of NYC. The view of the Manhattan Skyline you get from this place its incredible. Im glad i visited this the second time in new york and I didnt let it go.
  • Beautiful views of the city from a quaint, natural setting. My fiancé and I like this place so much, we got engaged here!
