Visited end October with a lovely autumnal vibe in surrounding Brooklyn Bridge Park. Great location for River Cafe and Ice cream factory. Wonderful backdrop to hear the Manhattan Symphony play Beethoven amongst others. Just a little different to everything else on offer. Great experience.

I took a friend visiting NYC, it's a nice change from all the touristy things, very local. Amazing musicians and music and gorgeous views of the city and Brooklyn.

The times I've gone people ranged from business casual to formal. I think you'd feel comfortable in anything's for more substantial than shorts or a bathing suit. Dark jeans and a blazer would be fine.
