This park is fantastic. It is probably one of the best parks in New York City for the views alone. You truly feel like your in Hollywood with the back drop of the city and the overview of Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. From a distance you can see the Statue of Liberty and the busy traffic of the New York waters. The park itself is such an amazing getaway to spend time with family and friends.

The Brooklyn Bridge was completed in 1883. It connects the NYC boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bridge was the first fixed crossing of the East River. The Brooklyn Bridge Park is a glorious revival of an industrial wasteland, taking in 85 acres (34 hectares) and 1,3 miles (2 km) of revitalized waterfront. Following an agreement between the State and NYC governments, work on the park began in 2007. We stayed in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, the area is quite safe these days, and the Brooklyn Bridge Park makes a good walk.

I changed my major at Temple this year to geography and urban studies and people think I’m a geography buff!! I am not that much of one but city life and cities bring me much joy!! I did a random presentation once about bathrooms in the city and how ladies always need to wait in very long lines!! I put a picture of the Bryant park bathroom and walked past it a few days after and I ran into someone who I haven’t talked to since fifth grade!! I happen to enjoy parks in the city and I went to this park today!! It was very green and had a lot of trees and flowers!! I happen to think nature is very good for a busy man who wants to chill!! They had a volleyball court and fountains and also a pizza place which we got lunch at!!

If you make it to Brooklyn when in NYC you have to stop here. The view is just incredible. Breath taking if you like a good skyscraper view. It was one of if not the best picture spot we found during our trip. It's right on the water so it is windy and a tad chilly sometimes so maybe bring a pony tail and a jacket.

TIPS
1. Best time to go is the morning. Mostly people walking dogs, kids in strollers, runners and bicyclists.
2. Avoid the crowds near the foot of Brooklyn Bridge especially on weekends and holidays.
3. If you have young kids or are sensitive to second-hand smoke, know that the pot smokers all come out at night, ruining the fresh air near the water and on the lawns.

We had initially visited the Brooklyn bridge but later discovered the best view comes from the Brooklyn bridge park. So visited again. There is also multi-brand restaurants place there which was quite happening.

I love getting to visit Brooklyn Bridge Park! Everyone likes to take instagram photos of DUMBO on Water St, but I think this park is the best. You have amazing views of the bridge and the Statue of Liberty if you walk down farther. There is plenty of space to run or walk your dog, and in the summer time, there are workout classes in the evenings and tons of programming and events. Pebble beach and the carousel some of my favorite spots.

We went at the time of the Halloween event, which was mostly stuff for younger children. They kids were all having a great time and it looked like a fun event.

We walked the length of the park, stopping to enjoy various places, and even played basketball for awhile.

The park has plenty of things to entertain all the family and makes for a good place to spend a day.

Amazing place to take pictures of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and stunning views of Manhattan. This was my first time to New York City and I'm a professional photographer so I had an awesome time. I went there at night as well as during the day. The day it was exciting and so much happening and going on there. At night it's just as vibrant and alive. I never felt unsafe there even in the park.
