Lovely walk with fab views

Nice flat, easy walk with fab views across the river to Manhattan. Lots of joggers and families out for walks with children. Felt safe, not traffic. Can recommend.

Currently undergoing regeneration to bring it up to Manhattan standards. When it is finished it will be a perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. We enjoyed out time here immensely

When looking for those iconic shots this is a must go. The neighbourhood also has many other offerings, great cafe's and restaurants. Visits Dumbo then you can head to Grimaldi's for pizza and then visit another great neighbourhood, Brooklyn Heights.

Not that great. Go there, park the car, get a picture under the bridge and then leave. That's about all there is here.
