We stumbled across this spot & stopped for a good hour, grabbed a drink from the lively modern riverside bar & sat and took in the view. Great photo op of the bridge.

This is a place where you can capture some amazing Brooklyn Bridge pictures and NYC Manhattan skyscrapers. There are walking trails if you want to just stroll or sit next to East river and relax.

A few parks in the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO area, this park is the best spot at night to get the full view of both lower and mid Manhattan, especially in the evening. This park is the best place to see the Manhattan Skylines in...More

Hands down the best spot to take breathtaking pictures in NYC. Also perfect, peaceful ambiance for taking a stroll in the middle of the city without feeling like you are.

In this part of Brooklyn where you'll see the beautiful view of Manhattan. Morning jog is perfect here and sunset moments is just perfect as you'll see the skyscrapers with their lights on. A perfect Big Apple moments!

The park in itself is not spectacular but very nicely located with great view and great photo opportunity for the New York or Brooklyn visitor.

A wonderful place to sit in and take the views of Manhattan and of the Brooklyn bridge, I would think this would be a popular spot for a picnic during the summer with the grassy park , wooden promenade and carousel.

Manhattan for me was the highlight, amazing hustle and bustle. So many ethnic groups of people, diverse in dress and in character. The shops are amazing. So much to see and do

The old port areas have been reclaimed and turned into a lovely and much-used recreation area with some of the best views in New York. Huge success.
