  • This view never gets old. The skyline behind the tall buildings serve as a canvas backdrop that man could never replicate! Always a nice place to take a stroll!
  • 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.
