The Promenade is a place to go to see the sights across the river, to walk or stroll at your own pace. All the benches provide places to sit and read, to think, to chat with a friend, to enjoy the day. For any or all of the above, I highly recommend a visit to the Promenade

This is a great walk along New York Harbor. Take time to sit on a bench to enjoy the view of NYC, the pedestrians and the boats as they pass by.

We come too often to promenade since we're staying in Brooklyn heights. Summer is the best time to hang out here. For me, this is the perfect spot in NYC.

I truly enjoy the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. It is a great place to go if you want to be alone, with a mate, your children, pets, etc. The view is magnificent. You won't be disappointed.

Just being there puts you right in the middle of so much history. The lights at night is too die for we all had such great laughter and fun that night on the promenade.

I love the repurposed barely used pier giving access to the public to these sight lines and viewpoints of the city from a beautifully created and molded landscape. The best part is the different styles and textures of the park environment. It's also very ergonomic. The architect of this park was really anti uniformity. Some of the old structures are... More

Where else can you go and see The Statue of Liberty, Downtown, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building all in one panoramic view? It's a nice spot to take pictures, sit and read or simply watch the people walking their dogs and jogging. Of course it's always fun to imagine being able to afford one of the stylish apartments that surround... More

Looking for a quiet romantic space this is the place to be with that special someone! You can walk in the summertime taking in the cool breeze and enjoy the sound of the waves and best of all it's free!

This is a great place to hang out with friends, or to have a romantic walk with that special someone.The view of Manhattan is amazing in the day time and even more beautiful at night.There are a great variety of restaurants to eat at. There are also a selection of women's clothing and shoe stores in the area.
