This is a great place to go alone or with family. Its larger than it may seem and has so many things to do especially in the summer.Skating, swimming, dinner and grilling. It is quite different from the places in the city. Its longer than you think so bring comfortable shoes if you are planning to walk from one pier... More

Brooklyn has done a great job re- purposing the abandoned piers on the East River and the docks. Great play grounds for kids and a swimming pool in the summer. Or just sit and enjoy the view

At the end of the line for the B63 bus from near the Barclay Centre, the walk up the East River in the Brooklyn Bridge Park was a special journey. In the distance, the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island. In your face, the lower Manhattan skyline. Further along, the Brooklyn Bridge and then the Manhattan bridge, DUMBO. Don't miss Jane's...

This was a wasteland left by the defunct Navy yards and mercantile industry. Now it is the most amazing urban park in the City. fantastic views, well designed layout. Gets crowded, go early, or go late when the sun goes down.

One of the best places to see New York City's famed skyline and of course, the iconic Brooklyn Bridge itself. The Statue of Liberty can also be seen in the distance. Easily accessible by public transport. Be there between morning and noon if you are looking to take good photos of the skyline and water because the sun will illuminate... More

The view from the park towards Manhattan skyline is amazing! In the evening, the sun sets behind the Manhattan and millions of lights illuminate the skyline.

A visit to this park can very well be combined with crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. It gives great views of Manhattan and also a nice view of the Statute of Liberty. The park itself is probably less interesting than the views you get from the park, again, do not miss this opportunity to Manhattan from the other side.
