  • Very nice calm place to visit and sit. See Manhattans East side skyline. Great photo ops. Water taxis, helicopters, boating, piers, basketball , skating etc... And restaurants..
  • One of the best skyline views you can enjoy for free from Brooklyn. It is extremely easy to access, walk and engage with the vibe. You can choose to walk your dog, view and buy street art, seat and enjoy the panoramic perspective; or simply read a book with a view.
  • All I gotta say is: Brooklyn Heights Promenade. If you don't know. Now you know. This place is stunning. One of the best architectural feats in the world.
  • Amazing place to see and visit . Of course the best time should be with Blue sky or during evening or Sun Set ... Amazing skyline of NY . I was unlucky because was raining There are some nice place to eat too
  • Keepin it real out here in Brooklyn Heights The promenade is such a popular hidden gem if that makes sense. I never regret making the walk down during my lunch breaks or whenever i'm in the area. The view is one of the best, comparable to the Gantry LIC view imo. The view is always different depending on the time you visit. The sunrise and sunset is truly something else. I hope to one day become those early joggers before sunrise, go out for an early jog and cool down at the promenade to the sunrise.
