  • Here you can admire an amazing view of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge while relaxing on this promenade. I just wanted to go running on this memorable seafront!  more »
  • Great place to walk and view the Manhattan skyline. Was a very hot day so needed to find shade along the way. Many places to sit and admire the surroundings.  more »
  • A wonderful view of lower Manhattan and the harbor. Best at twilight . Romantic view of the Big Apple. End your walk by dining on Montague St.  more »

  • Haven't visited here in a few years and the neighborhood hasn't changed other than a few new stores replacing old ones...and staying the same for Brooklyn Heights is a good thing. Home to many pre-Civil War historic buildings the neighborhood has a wonderful promenade that overlook lower Manhattan and NY harbor. Check out the relatively new park below the promenade on the waterfront. What a great addition. Top off your visit by walking back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • It is one of my favorite places in Brooklyn. The views on the city are really epic and you get to enjoy a scenic look at downtown of Manhattan. This is also a romantic place to bring your dates over. I come to this place once in awhile after work especially during the summer.
  • Nice date place owing to its romantic vibe. This is also one of the best places to see New York’s extended skyline, which includes the Financial District dominated by One World Trade Center and the Midtown district dominated by the Empire State Building. The Statue of Liberty is also visible in the distance. On a sunny day, the best time to go for good photos is from early to late morning.
  • The most romantic view of the city. This place offers an incredible scene of the Manhattan skyline, it is beautiful during the day time and magical during the night. From up there you can see the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building, The Rockefeller, One World Tower, and so much more. If you live in this city and have not seen this you must, and if you come to visit you definitely should, it is a great view, perfect for pictures, marriage proposals and fashion shots.
  • You simply must visit this place when visiting New York. Views to Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge are just stunning. Promenade is long and there are numerous comfy benches all way long. Beautiful houses on Brooklyn side make a nice bonus as well.
