This area of Brooklyn has been transformed into a neighborhood with a good vibe. The shops, restaurants, arts, etc. have turned the spot around. Right in the midst of it is this nice little park. A little oasis amongst the activity. Besides being a nice park to run, walk, or relax there is a nice playground. The park also has... More

This is the place to see and be seen in New York City. The new melting pot of America. The New face of New York City!

I walk past the park all the time and cut through it as often as possible. Besides walking up to the spectacular monument over the crypt holding the remains of over 11,000 revolutionary war prisoners of war that died on British prison ships in New York's harbor, I hadn't used any of the parks offerings until my brother and niece...

This is a vibrant part of Brooklyn, feels like Manhattan and is only five minutes away on subway. Mixed community and friendly vibe.

Just across the Brooklyn Bridgwe from Manhattan lies the increasingly "upscale" Brooklyn neighbourhood of Fort Greene, and it's park. It is a lovely park with parking all around the perimeter of the place, and it is set on a hill from where you can see the "man made" peaks of Manhattan and the towers of the bridge. Why should you... More

Quiet little park with lots of tennis courts and ball diamonds for the locals, great views (the park is in part one big hill) a few tables, some sitting areas and a large monument to the prison ship martyrs as well as a small museum attended by a NYC Ranger. Worth a stop if in the area,

Crossed the Brooklyn Bridge and walked here, obviously the wrong way as we were constantly looking behind us ( for fear of our lives) the streets are filthy littered with rubbish and dog poo everywhere. Plenty other places to see in Brooklyn.

Growing up in Park Slope Brooklyn, the nearby tree lined streets and good high schools were of most importance. My parents were understanding - "you want to be dumb, forget it and save money and time"!Fort Greene & Brooklyn Tech HS were THE BEST!

Fort Green has some of the the city's most beautiful architecture. Take a lovely stroll through the blocks between Dekalb Ave and Lafayette Avenue. Start at the Masonic Temple and the ornate St Anne church at Clermont Ave & Lafayette Ave, then walk along Adelphi St, Carlton Ave and up to 6th Street - notice the old colonial type houses... More
