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.

​One of the best places in Brooklyn to view Manhattan's famed skyline and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and the lesser known Manhattan Bridge. Easily accessible by subway. Visit in the morning or around sunset for the best photos.

New York has much better places and the only reason for visiting this place is walking or cycling the Brooklyn Bridge.
