Tips

  • I have never worn skinny jeans, but if I did I would wear them here.
  • Watch the sun set over Manhattan as the East River glistens before you.
  • The best waterfront in NYC offers a unique view of the lower Manhattan skyline, aquatic features, such as a salt marsh filled with native cordgrass, and Janes Carousel, a restored ride from 1922.
  • Brooklyn Bridge Park offers spectacular photo opportunities of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. The rocky area by the water is the optimal spot for shots.
  • Go to Pier 1 or Pier 6 to connect to free Wi-Fi, courtesy of AT&T.
  • On extremely hot days, be careful -- in July, 2010, temperatures on the black rubber playground here reached a city-wide high of 171 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • New and accessible by walking over the Brooklyn Bridge. The best of both worlds with stunning views of Manhattan from Brooklyn Bridge Park. Bring your beachwear for summer fun in the sun.
  • This bridge park is good for walking at night with family. I also liked that.
  • I love ice creams there.
  • Starting in July 2010, the park's Pier 1 will have vendors serving tacos, crab rolls, wine, beer, and ice cream. (The city will make about $120,000 a year from the deal.)
