There is an outdoor stone oven, which was built by an old childhood friend, J. Partick Manley, and is used for special events on site. An interesting site to visit when they are open. Very knowledgeable staff.

If the park police let you in there it's a nice view of an old stone building. It's in a NYC park so bring your kids and let them play.

Very lovely, historic house that houses a small gallery with rotating shows that are generally very interesting. Stop in to learn about the Battle of Brooklyn and maybe attend one of their events or concerts. Worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood.
