  • Located in Brooklyn as soon as you cross the Brooklyn Bridge. This elevated walkway and park runs alongside the water offers a nice place to relax and a great view of the Manhattan skyline as well as a view of the Statue of Liberty in the distance. It is near a quiet neighborhood and has many benches to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and unwind.
  • In the good old days, I had an office on Court Street a couple of blocks away. This was a favorite place for an office break. While most people are drawn to the breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and the harbor, I'm fascinated by the New Orleans style metalwork on the buildings overlooking the Promenade.
  • A long time love. I go there to gather my thoughts and feel the positive energy from my fellow artists and writers. And the best part is that the view is continuing to get better.
  • This is one of my favorite places to go to in Brooklyn. It's so beautiful and looks over NYC and u can see the Statue of Liberty from there. It's a great place to just sit and reflect. It never gets old. 💓💓💓
  • Eye opening experience, You appreciate your city. Born in 61and raised in Manhattan. Kind of makes you want to rediscover your home.
