In this part of Brooklyn where you'll see the beautiful view of Manhattan. Morning jog is perfect here and sunset moments is just perfect as you'll see the skyscrapers with their lights on. A perfect Big Apple moments!

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.
