This is my favorite promenade in the city. The view is spectacular, it's clean, there's lots of greenery, near one of the most beautiful areas in the city, Brooklyn Heights, perfect spot for the sundown. It's really a wonderful place.

Pleasent walk above the bridge park, full of benches to stop admiring the wonderful view, both during the day and at night, especially at sunset, when the skyscrapers may become all red, while lights start going on. Super.

We returned here after a long time. It was sad not to find the Twin Towers (yes, that much time) but the view is still beautiful. We were glad to see that Brooklyn is turning into a much, much better place. Even though Brooklyn Heights has always been a very nice neighborhood, I can say that it's better now.

One of the most iconic views in NYC. It's about four blocks long and if you start at the southern end (Remsen St) and head north you get great views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and the Staten Island ferry. At the northern end you can exit the Promenade to Columbia Heights. A few blocks to the... More

One of the best free views of NY, you can just sit, relax and enjoy the amazing view. It is a safe place because always there are people walking around.

Beautiful place overall! After our date, we went for a beautiful walk with an amazing view of Manhattan skyline and the water. The houses are beautiful along the way and is quite a romantic place overall.
