We didn't come here to intentionally go to this park but it was a nice surprise after lunch. It is located just outside the West Elm store on the corner of Main St. and Plymouth St. Easy access and a great walk along the water. I loved the views of the bridge and the city. Would be great to visit... More

The green grass here begs to be laid on in the nice weather. The city sits in front of you, The Brooklyn Bridge over your left shoulder, a Carousel and the Manhattan Bridge off to the right. Grab a pizza, bring a blanket and have a picnic. If you are visiting the city, take the subway out here and enjoy... More

​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.

Stroll along the river with the best views on Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan on the background. Must do when visiting NYC.

My first stop on the Brooklyn side of the river to enjoy this iconic landmark. Very sad at the obnoxious orange sculpture that ruins all of my pictures of the bridge. I guess that's why there is Photoshop!

As part of your Brooklyn visit, you should definitely include this park - a short stroll from DUMBO and a great spot to sit relax and enjoy views of Manhattan.

Strolling around Brooklyn on a glorious November Sunday we came across this Park and spent some time enjoying the Iconic Views so often seen in films and photographs. Apart from the two bridges and the views of the Manhattan skyline, there is the added bonus of Jane's Carousel. Excellent restrooms and good coffee nearby added to the trip. If you... More

This a nice park for walking around and relaxing. It's a great park for views of Lower Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, and World Trade One. On a clear day it's great for some terrific photos as well as a great place for night photos. They've done some repair work on the walking paths to improve the experience. There is paid... More
