Its promenade, which opened to the public in 1950, features wooden benches to take in the Manhattan skyline, scenic greenery and flowers to contrast with the city’s concrete structures, and playgrounds for children to enjoy. Take a jog or romantic stroll down the promenade on your way to Brooklyn Bridge Park or before exploring the adjacent neighborhood’s brownstone-lined streets.

  • Beautiful walk with exceptional views! Take the walk all the way to DUMBO and the Brooklyn Bridge for a fabulous afternoon. Great for all ages!

  • Loved our walk along this promenade on a cold, yet sunny morning. Hard to find a better view of the Manhattan skyline. Highly recommended.

  • Very nice calm place to visit and sit. See Manhattans East side skyline. Great photo ops. Water taxis, helicopters, boating, piers, basketball , skating etc... And restaurants..
  • One of the best skyline views you can enjoy for free from Brooklyn. It is extremely easy to access, walk and engage with the vibe. You can choose to walk your dog, view and buy street art, seat and enjoy the panoramic perspective; or simply read a book with a view.
