Best view of Manhattan

City parking near pier 2 is best way to park. Take a walk toward pier 2 to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Manhattan. Lots of playground for kids to adult.

Majestic view to Manhattan bridge and the East river...and the great Manhattan skyline. Great place to take wedding or family photos. My kids loved riding Jane's Carousel. There is also the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. It's a hand-made ice cream shop. Awesome place to hang out or just walk around.

‘Jane’s Carousel’ is a wonderful find on the banks of the Hudson River in Brooklyn Bridge park between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. A meticulously restored 1922 wooden carousel, housed in a glass pavilion, with great views of the bridges and Manhattan.

Wow - the view is just magnificent. Bring your camera and snap, snap, snap! It can also be very peaceful because the sounds of the city are somewhat muffled.

Just love to visit this park when the weather is clear and sunny. The skyline of Manhattan is great from this side. You can walk forever,pick-up something to eat,take a carousal ride or a ferry into the city. There's plenty of space to just have a picnic. By the way just down the block is the oldest pizza restaurant also... More
