Brooklyn Bridge Park

334 Furman St.
Brooklyn, NY 11201


Brooklyn Bridge Park, as its name would suggest, is stationed under the Brooklyn Bridge. It draws thousands of visitors each week who come for awe-inspiring views of Manhattan and idyllic picnic spots along the waterfront. The park is also the site of special events, including the free Movies With a View, kayaking, rowing and fitness classes. This park is in the midst of combining with another, newer Brooklyn Bridge Park to create an even more appealing coastal attraction—complete with multipurpose fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, an in-line skating rink, an additional dog run and a safe harbor for nonmotorized boating. The phases that have been completed include Pier 1 (featuring large lawns, a waterfront promenade, playground and concessions, and pedestrian paths), Pier 6 (which includes a playground, bikeway/walkway, dog run and seasonal water taxi service to Governors Island and other points) and the uplands of Pier 3, including a spiral pool and a boat ramp. Expect renovations to continue through spring 2013. Visit for more information.
