This place is great to hang out at and get some fresh ice cream and lobster rolls. They also have a solar charging station so bring your phone plugs with you.

You can take the 2 or 3 train to Clark Street--the first stop in Brooklyn--and walk from there. Or you can take a leisurely walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and walk back to the park from there.

From stunning views, to the vintage carousel, to lovely walking paths, the Brooklyn Bridge Park is a great place to spend a couple of hours or a whole day. The views of the bridges and lower Manhattan make for a great photo op. This is a new 'must see' for people visiting NY.

The Park is still under construction but it is already a great destination in addition to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and Dumbo.. Walk, eat, look, sit, enjoy the truly awesome vista.
