Very historic and beautiful views. Fun shops and good people watching, right on the water. Manhatten, Statue of Liberty right there with the bridge right over you.

From the Brooklyn promenade you can watch and admire the Manhattan skyline and you get also distance views of the Statue of Liberty. We visited the promenade on a sunny afternoon. Great spot to have a relaxing moment.

Nice walk with clear views over the Manhattan skyline! To see lady Liberty you have to fight with all The tourist choppers hovering over and around her!

I love the Brooklyn Promenade. This was my fourth visit, but my first visit at night. It is just a gorgeous view of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.

Walking the promenade is a must as is walking over the Brooklyn Bridge. You'll get the best views of NYC as well as the Statue of Liberty and Governor's Island. The development of the Pier area below the promenade is also quite nice.
