“Photo spot”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I took some of my best pictures over the NYC skyline from here.

The promenade is full of park benches, so you can sit and enjoy the view. There is also toilets available around the area.

I can't do anything else than recommend this to everyone. It's free and you have one of the best views over Manhattan from here.

“Great photo spot”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Walk the bridge and end up here - you won't regret it! This is where you will have seen photos of downtown with the wooden posts in the water in the foreground. Great shots of the Brooklyn Bridge from here too.

From Brooklyn Heights Promenade you can rest your legs sitting on of of the tens of green benches, enjoy the view of Manhattan's high rises, minus the noise.

“I almost envy the people who live here...”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

...in their quaint rowhouses with their balconies overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Almost, because of course it's miserable outside at least 6 months out of the year. But I don't live here, and on a warm summer night, I stayed for hours taking photos of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge as the afternoon light faded away and the lights came on.
