First time in Brooklyn so we had to find a place along the East River to photograph the lower Manhattan skyline. We lucked out with an on-street parking spot near the eastern Promenade entrance on Columbia Heights, so were able to walk the entire length and take in stunning views of the skyline as well as the Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. So beautiful!! Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy for as long as you desire. We enjoyed the late afternoon and sunset views, then walked up Montague Street for dinner, and returned to the Promenade for the night shots of Manhattan.

When you want a skyline view, you go to the promenade. It’s as simple as that. Once you get some Ice Cream from a local joint you can take a seat and take in that view. And it’s a view that will make you take in the rest of life in different ways. It’ll feel surreal, you’ll ant to reach out and see if it’s a picture, it isn’t. And that’s the beauty of it. You can be in the moment like in no other place. And this is one place where you can block out all other noises unlike any other location. And if you have younger kids there is a playground RIGHT next to where Mr Softee usually comes. It is also a great place to run in the morning with the refreshing breeze. Whatever purpose it serves, the promenade will enchant you in a number of ways.

To Walk the Promenade is to Walk Back in Time..

You get to see a wonderful view of lower Manhattan. With the new skyline developing and the river traffic very busy with transit ferries a buss. Must admit we do miss the old view of the original World Trade Center.

Now below you will see the old Port Authority Pier area being developed into Park and Recreation area with sport included. Even a walk below will allow you to walk a Mall along the waterfront.

But at night what a wonderful keepsake picture.

Go to the far end and enjoy the DUMBO area of Brooklyn Bridge.

All true New Yorker's know about Brooklyn Heights Promenade. As Brooklyn has become a much more prominent destination for tourists, this is a must see. It's free to the public with expansive space accommodated by a spectacular view of lower Manhattan. Photography enthusiast will have a hard time trying to leave once they see unobtrusive open view with plenty of room to roam around with a tripod.

Another place which gives you great views and the ideal picturesque views of Manhattan. A good place to sit and watch the world go by or all the action on the river. Not a place to go out of your way to visit but if nearby, not many other places offer a great place to have the city skyline in the background of a phot.

This long promenade hugs the Brooklyn shore of the East River. When the weather is not too hot or cold, it is a world-class stroll. You will see everything from lower Manhattan right in your face up to midtown. You will see, from lower to midtown, the Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg and Queensboro Bridges in a row. One of the great viewpoints in the USA, and even worldwide.

Great backdrop for pictures. In the winter it can be a bit windy. Lots of food close by. Parking can be a bear. Great place to spend a few hours walking (assuming it's nice weather). May be nice and breezy in the summer - it is right on water.

Brooklyn heights promenade is a great place to get out doors and relax, take your dog for a walk or go on a leisurely walk yourself. Clean well maintained and beautiful overall. Worth going if live nearby. Never too packed. Locals are nice streets and area is pretty. Go-to for walks and getting some fresh air

One of the best views of New York City. View of The Statue of Liberty, Verazano Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, and Lower Manhattan. Absolutely breathtaking at night time. Highly recommended. Take the 2 or 3 train to Clark Street. Walk to the right once you get out of the train station and you'll walk right to it.

You can come here solo, with your friend or girl-friend or may be as a newly-wed couple like most of them do it on the same day they get married.

You can come here in a lot of ways and in a lot of moods. What you get at the end is the the most gloriously memorable moments that you can never forget in your life. It is a picture of not only Manhattan but the utmost eternally iconic view in all of New York City.
It is a view that would make you feel you are in a dream that you would never wake up from or in a gloriously made Hollywood movie.

This place has all the things that will promise you that you will never forget it as it will be deeply pressed between the lines and pages of your mind eternally forced by a wonderfully indescribable feeling which you could never experience in any other time or at any other place in your life !
