This is a pedestrian friendly area. The views to the city, the Brooklyn bridge and the Statue of Liberty are astonishing from here. There are benches if you want to sit, relax and take it all in. Simply beautiful.

The view you have seen in movies, on posters and photos. Best in the evening with the city lit up. It's breathtaking view and very romantic for couples. A must-see for any visitor in NYC.

Best viem ever on Manhattan.... If there is a picture you want to take it is from there... you see the Manhattan, the statue of Liberty and the Broocklyn bridge.... and it is walking distance from Grimaldi's if you want to combine.... you could also walk the brooklyn bridge in the same day...

You've no doubt seen the Manhattan skyline in movie after movie...but to experience the thrill of standing at the very spot from which they are filmed is quite a thrill. A stroll along this promenade opens up fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bride, and the entire brilliance of lower Manhattan to midtown. Plus, there is the... More

Stunning place to visit when in New York. We visited as part of a walking tour and were blown away by the views. The most perfect place day or night for photos in NYC
