Great location for a spectacular view of Manhattan located in a very nice Brooklyn neighborhood. When the weather is right the promenade is a nice place to stroll.

Perfect for a walk to cool off at the end of the day. Have dinner on nearby Henry Street then watch the sunset over the statue of liberty.

The view of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge and the river from the promenade is amazing, which is why every TV show and movie that features a shot of downtown comes here to film. Also a great place to people watch and suntan when it's warm.

Quite a few activities here. Fun filled Pier 2 is right below. The park is amazing. I enjoy spending time here leisurely walking, watching the boats sailing. July 4th fireworks, love it!!!
