  • The place was very busy on a summer Saturday afternoon, but it actually added to the fun. Great views and good atmosphere.  more »
  • Excellent area with a view that impresses you by watching the homonymous bridge. Spot for commemorative photos with a view of Manhattan. Worth a stroll any time of the day but the ideal time is the dusk that begin and illuminated everything.

  • Best place for a sunrise and sunset picture of new york. You can see the statue of liberty, the entire skyline if the clouds clear, and the Brooklyn Bridge. The entire park is made for the viewing with lots of great corners where you can get good panorama. The bridge is kind of confusing to cross to get here so look up directions carefully
  • Always happy to visit this place, especially at night. You get to see the spectacular view of Manhattan. There are couple of chairs where we can sit and relax and enjoy the breeze over the river. Be careful of bicycle riders. They move very fast. Apart from that you can take a relaxing walk and enjoy the view.
