This location is an awesome spot at night to think, relax and chill out. Having the city view from across the water is perfect. It gets crowded at night especially in the summer people are coming for the view of the city (tourists) thats expected. Other people walk their dogs along the Promenade.

The promenade has the most spectacular views of the Manhattan Skyline accros the Hudson river. At night the views become even more spectacular of the millions of lights of the skyscrapers. It feels like you are in wonderland. Below is the wonderfully new Brooklyn Park along the river's edge. Recommended in Spring, Summer and Fall. I go there often to... More

Just the night views alone is amazing. Walking up and down the promenade holding hands with that special someone in your life makes you feel better than watching your favorite movie at home.

I have gone down to the Promenade many times. It's the best in Spring and Fall or whenever the weather is not too extreme. It's always very windy, so take that into account! But the view across the river, which is always a little wild, is so stunning and so dramatic. If you've come to NYC to "see" Lower Manhattan,... More

Buy lunch on Montague Street, take it to go, sit in one of the many benches and enjoy the view. Sunset is also spectacular from the promenade. I have seen couples with a picnic basket and a bottle of champagne, waiting for the sun to go down and the lights to come up. If you come during the week of... More

Brooklyn Heights Promenade is probably one of the best places to see drop dead gorgeous views of Manhattan (and Liberty Island) while visiting one of the prettiest Brooklyn's neighborhoods. The views of Manhattan are million dollar views and the stroll on the promenade will allow you to see beautiful brownstones overlooking it. Eventually, you will end up in Brooklyn Bridge... More

I love to come to sit here and look at the views of lower Manhattan. The Waterfront is beautiful. Many tourists like to enjoy watching New York harbor and the Brooklyn Bridge.

I would suggest taking a day to visit Brooklyn and walk along the outer neighborhoods. Whether this is Dumbo or Brooklyn Heights, the downtown views are amazing and you can capture some nice pictures of the Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bridge. I would recommend going in the warmer months as folks below have mentioned (May-September).

If you like NYC, you cannot miss this spot, at all. Best at sunset, before dinnering out in Brooklyn of course.

Visited the promenade as part of a walking tour. Great views of Manhattan. It wasn't very crowded because it was rather chilly that day, but well worth the visit.
