Outdoors & Recreation
Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 5
A former waterside shipping hub, this five-acre area with a 500-foot pier has been transformed into a public waterside playland, with picnic tables and grills, fields for soccer and other sports, green space and even a dedicated fishing area.
After establishing DUMBO neighborhood icon Grimaldi’s Pizza—a pizza place so good, it became a local tourist attraction in its own right—founders Patsy and Carol Grimaldi sold off their interest in that restaurant over a decade ago, retiring from the food business.
