  • Very nice calm place to visit and sit. See Manhattans East side skyline. Great photo ops. Water taxis, helicopters, boating, piers, basketball , skating etc... And restaurants..
  • 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.
