Walked this at night with my mom and saw tons of people out having bbq's and playing sports. Seems like a nice place to just sit down and relax. The view of Manhattan isn't that bad either.

Night view of the Manhattan skyline is gorgeous and amazing, make sure to go there after the sunset to the most out of your visit. Walk the Promenade and enjoy the skyscrapers lights.

Astonishing, magical view over Manhattan. A must see if you are in NYC, Besides you are able to catch a water taxi or just take a seat at one of the multiple benches and enjoy the overwhelming view and skyline of Manhattan island.

This is an excellent spot to view the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, the Staten Island Ferry and the beautiful Brooklyn Heights area. Buy ice cream on Remsen Street and enjoy it here. Sit back and relax to the hum of traffic on the BQE running below. Take beautiful pictures for a lasting memory.

This is a beautiful area - very safe and clean - and the views into lower Manhattan are just breathtaking!! I love the way that this was set up. There is no charge, and you can enter the promenade at several different locations. There are benches the whole way along so that you can sit, relax and totally enjoy!

Best spot to get magnificent Manhattan skyline views as well as a view of the Brooklyn bridge park. Also has many great places around it, such as Montague St, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Grimaldi's pizza.

Any time day or night, the Brooklyn Promenade provides a must see view of NYC. My suggestion is, as you walk to the Promenade, take Montague Street. Montague Street is lined with scores of shops and restaurants and makes for a better walk.There are several other streets that take you to the Promenade and they are primarily residential. If you...

I went to school in Brooklyn Heights and living in BK my whole life, there is something otherworldly about The Promenade. It's not long but boy what is lacks in length it make up with a sort of breath-taking but serene vista. Access to The Prommenade (for me) is best made walking straight down Montague Street from the wide MTA... More

If you want a fantastic view of lower Manhattan this is the place to go, nice park to just hang out and look at the Statue of Librerty, or the Brooklyn Bridge
