Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Brooklyn
Categories: Historic Walking Areas, Tourist Spots
Featured in classic New York films like Annie Hall and Moonstruck, Brooklyn Heights Promenade offers beautiful views of the East River and Statue of Liberty in Brooklyn’s oldest neighborhood. Brooklyn Heights is the Brooklyn borough's first Historic Preservation District. Its promenade, which opened to the public in 1950, features wooden benches to take in the Manhattan skyline, scenic greenery and flowers to contrast with the city’s concrete structures, and playgrounds for children to enjoy. Take a jog or romantic stroll down the promenade on your way to Brooklyn Bridge Park or before exploring the adjacent neighborhood’s brownstone-lined streets. A visit to Brooklyn Heights Promenade represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Brooklyn trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

Utmärkt promenad, gärna inkl Brooklyn bridge. Finns utmärkta sittplatser att vila på och att njuta av utsikten. Subway inte så långt därifrån.Great walk, preferably including the Brooklyn bridge. There are excellent seats to rest and to enjoy the view. Subway not so far away.show original
Tard le soir, on vient de poser nos valises dans une maison d'hôte de Brooklyn. Il fait nuit, une pluie fine nous a tenu éveillé depuis la bouche de métro, on hésite à juste succomber au jet lag et à ... read more »Late at night, we just put our suitcases in a guesthouse in Brooklyn. It's dark, a light rain kept us awake for subway, we hesitate to just succumbing to jet lag and collapse on the bed and say we'll find out tomorrow. And then, stimulated by the place, we ended up still braving the drizzle of September for a quick ride to feet... A few minutes later, more than a park, and two, we rushes into a street one-way, and then, like that, at the corner of an old brick building, here it is. The skyline of Manhattan. View just totally unlikely so it took us by surprise. It's may be the most cheap and the "accidental" things I've done in New York, but I think it will be my memory strongest.show original

Beautiful view of the city buildings. Always a great spot for photos. Usually see lots of tourists but also see locals from the neighborhood. Great spot to see fireworks during 4th of July. Overall great place for first time tourist in nyc.
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.
Beautiful views of the city from a quaint, natural setting. My fiancé and I like this place so much, we got engaged here!
Try to come for a sunset! One of the best free attractions in New York City. Great views of Lower Manhattan and a great place to watch a sunset! For you romantics out there, this is a great place to bring a date!
On top of the Brooklyn Queens Expy you find the mood to sit down and relax and enjoy the skyline of Manhattan. One important thing to consider: There are only two ways from the piers up to the promenade. In the beginning of Pier One and at Pier Five.
