Grand Ferry Park

50 River St (at Grand St)
Brooklyn, NY 11211


  • A nice place to stop and contemplate your life for a moment.
  • This is where people in the hood come to look longingly at the river and cry alone. I see at least one person in tears every time I'm here.
  • Go when it's cold or raining and you can have the park to yourself
  • Propose to the love of your life and admire the view.
  • Watch out for the raccoons they will rip your face off
  • There's a nice little water fountain hiding by the picnic tables. Great for refilling your water bottle after a bike trip up Kent.
  • Sandwiched between a power plant and five blocks of Domino Sugar factory, and anchored by a 70-foot-tall brick smokestack from a long-gone molasses plant.
  • Come at sunset and enjoy incredible views
  • My favorite park in the city. Take a seat on the rocks, enjoy the view and unwind.
  • Great place to chilll and enjoy the view
  • Right next to the Domino Sugar Factory
  • Grab (or share) a picnic table and enjoy the breeze!
  • Views great, but come before the neighborhood gets overcrowded!
  • Get the benches at the front.
  • The view and community garden are awesome. Close to coffee and trendy stores if that floats your boat.
  • Great view
  • Nice views of Manhattan, especially before sunset.
  • Great views of Manhattan from here. Perfect place to take a pause.
  • Dogs are not allowed off leash but there often are several dogs off-leash in the morning.
  • Grand Ferry Park in South Williamsburg, Brooklynis like a little slice of the beach on the East River, complete with sand!
