Always enjoy going there. At the end you have to tune out the noise from the mahattan bridge traffic

My daughter and I enjoy strolling along the winding walkways at BBP. You'll sit on the grass soaking sun or soak in the pop-up pool before catching an outdoor movie beneath the stars. You'll find good eats at Fortuna, fresh homemade ice cream adjacent the Old Fulton Landing pier and a candlelit waterfront dining experience at the 'make reservations' River... More

We went to the Brooklyn Bridge Park while it was snowing to get some shots of the Manhattan skyline. Views from this location are stunning. Can't wait to go back again in the Spring and do it all over again.

The park is down on the site from the bridge, so you have a beatiful view on the bridge and also on sky line of Manhattan.

My first goal in visiting New York City was to find a great view of the Manhattan skyline. Since I stayed in Brooklyn, I knew I was close. I drove around the borough for a couple hours and finally happened upon this park. I got there near sundown, and it was wonderfully tranquil to walk around. There are vast walking... More

There are 6 piers in Brooklyn Bridge Park. You can do/see different things on each pier, and can easily walk between the piers. Some of the attractions included in the park are playgrounds, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and a very small "beach" area. You can also pick up the ferry to Goveners Island (from Memorial Day though Labor Day).

I participated in the 20-year planning process that finally resulted in the construction of this unique urban park. Many Brooklynites, particularly residents of Brooklyn Heights, are opposed to the funding mechanism (residential development along the park's edge) that will yield the means to maintain and operate this park, the same way as Hudson River Park and Governors Island Park must...

We got to the park by walking over the Brooklyn Bridge during the dark and then strolled along the waterfront in the park and we were rewarded with some great views of Manhattan. I imagine that the views during the day are just as good. Would highly recommend you getting down here for a stroll.

Along with Central and Prospect this park is in the top 3 Parks of NYC. Absolutely gorgeous with sweeping views of downtown and nice views of midtown. It sits in the best Brooklyn neighborhoods with plenty of great restaurants. A must visit for all living or visiting NYC.
