Plenty of places to sit and wait for your group to reorganize, and start the trek back across the Bridge. The farmers market on Saturdays has lots of good things to eat - a little pricey - but a nice variety.

Brooklyn Borough Hall is the political center of Kings County. At the southern corner of Cadman Plaza, it is one of the most visible buildings in downtown Brooklyn. Good place for pictures. The park in front of it is also a nice venue for picnic.

If you are into architecture and are in the area check out the building and the small pocket garden. There are also tables and chairs if you need to rest or just want to hang for awhile.
