Gorgeous Views of Manhattan
Nov. 2021
This short walk is a knock-out and a must-do if you come to Brooklyn. I was here on a crystal-clear day in the Fall and the views of the Manhattan skyline were superb. Lots of pictures were snapped. Some benches to sit on if you are tired. And the neighborhood is picture-perfect as well.

The perfect place to see the Manhattan skyline!!
Oct. 2021
First time in Brooklyn so we had to find a place along the East River to photograph the lower Manhattan skyline. We lucked out with an on-street parking spot near the eastern Promenade entrance on Columbia Heights, so were able to walk the entire length and take in stunning views of the skyline as well as the Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. So beautiful!! Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy for as long as you desire. We enjoyed the late afternoon and sunset views, then walked up Montague Street for dinner, and returned to the Promenade for the night shots of Manhattan.

Picturesque Backdrop of Manhattan.
Sep. 2021 • Family
Another place which gives you great views and the ideal picturesque views of Manhattan. A good place to sit and watch the world go by or all the action on the river. Not a place to go out of your way to visit but if nearby, not many other places offer a great place to have the city skyline in the background of a phot.

Definitely worth spending time in this waterside park. The views of the East River, Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge are spectacular.

Wonderful Location to stroll
May 2021
To Walk the Promenade is to Walk Back in Time..

You get to see a wonderful view of lower Manhattan. With the new skyline developing and the river traffic very busy with transit ferries a buss. Must admit we do miss the old view of the original World Trade Center.

Now below you will see the old Port Authority Pier area being developed into Park and Recreation area with sport included. Even a walk below will allow you to walk a Mall along the waterfront.

But at night what a wonderful keepsake picture.

Go to the far end and enjoy the DUMBO area of Brooklyn Bridge.

people-watching in the shade
Jun. 2021
Great place to walk off a big breakfast or sit for people-watching. Plenty of trees provide shade so you can comfortably sit and watch the ferries go by, or see a bunch of cute dogs getting walked.

New York Still Inspires

The walk along the promenade was truly a delight with the views from the Brooklyn Bridge Park being the highlight. Having lived in Flushing NY in the late 70s I had forgotten how much I loved New York. The Promenade walk jogged those good memories.

Great views of lower Manhattan from historic Brooklyn Heights area
May 2021
This reasonably short promenade (built over an interstate highway) provides great views of lower Manhattan from the historic Brooklyn Heights area. The half mile Promenade is quiet (think lots of families & dogs been taken for walks) and is connected to the many apartment houses in Brooklyn Heights. There are plenty of restaurants on the nearby main street next to the subway stop.
