NYC - The Official Guide

Brooklyn Bridge Park


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. The appealing coastal attraction comprises a series of piers filled with recreational facilities, gardens, playgrounds, greenways and grassy areas for hanging out. Pier 2 holds basketball courts, an in-line skating rink and a pop-up pool. A sandy "beach" serves as a (nonmotorized) boat launch at Pier 4; You'll find kid-friendly play areas at both ends (and some in between); the ones at Pier 6 include swings, slides, a giant sandbox and a water feature. There's also a seasonal ferry from that pier that serves Governors Island.
