Why locals love it

One of Brooklyn's crown jewels, Brooklyn Bridge Park highlights one of the very best things Brooklyn has to offer - its view of Manhattan. It is a great place to picnic while enjoying sweeping views of the East River and Manhattan, or forget the picnic and try one the many delicous food trucks and pop-up restaurants.

Why you should visit it

Visiting Brooklyn Bridge Park is a great break away from the often overwhelming itinerary of your must-see-it-all trip to New York City. Visitors to Brooklyn Bridge Park enjoy a spectacular panorama, while slowing down to a more relaxed pace.

Special tip

Don't be a sucker and fall for Grimaldi's pizza. Do yourself a favor and go next door to Juliana's - it's history will surprise you!

Stunning city views. Try not to come in a weekend unless you like hoards of people obstructing your view. Any bars/restaurants near here are also insanely priced. Gotta walk inland a bit. But worth the views

Make sure to visit the park at sunset. The sun setting behind Manhattan is spectacular

The Brooklyn Heights promenade is a must see at sunset!
