This park is relatively new on the East River in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Visitors will like it for the drop dead views of Midtown Manhattan. Greenpoint is a really hip and cool neighborhood. Reminds me of the old Greenwich Village before the $$$ poured in and...More

This park offers a great view back to Manhattan across the East River (actually it's an estuary). There's some cool street murals around and you can pop into Maman for a great coffee in Kent St.

The park is small but it has great location - just across the bay, you can see most of the east side of Manhattan. Really cool place to chill!
