Park
“Prospect Park is an urban park in Brooklyn, New York. The park is situated between the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Flatbush and Windsor Terrace. Also, it is adjacent to the Brooklyn Museum, Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. With an area of 526 acres, Prospect Park is the second largest public park in Brooklyn, behind Marine Park. First proposed in legislation which was passed in 1859, Prospect Park was laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who also helped design Manhattan's Central Park following various changes to its design. Prospect Park opened in 1867, though it was not substantially complete until 1873. The park subsequently underwent numerous modifications and expansions to its facilities. Several additions to the park were completed in the 1890s in the 'City Beautiful' architectural movement. In the early 20th century, New York City Department of Parks and Recreation commissioner, Robert Moses started a program to clean up Prospect Park. A period of decline in the late 20th century spurred the creation of the Prospect Park Alliance, which refurbished many parts of the park starting in the late 1980s. 4.7 stars (14,628 reviews) Excellent Hours: Sunday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Monday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Tuesday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Wednesday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Thursday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Friday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Saturday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM”

“The hippies who famously turned up and tuned out in Washington Square Park are still there in spirit, and indeed often in person. In warmer months the park—which was once a potter’s field—is one of the best people-watching spots in the city, hummings with musicians and street artists, while skateboarders clatter near the base of the iconic 1895 Washington Arch (a modest replica of Paris’s Arc de Triomphe). Plus, kids can splash in the area's new fountain on sweltering days.”

“Need a place to jog? Play some basketball? Let your pup off leash? This park is a little bit of a walk, but it's worth it, as it is the best park in the area. Have you seen the Netflix show "It's Bruno!"? They frequent this park. There's also a bunch of great places to eat, cool boutiques, and vintage shops nearby. ”

“A tiny little wisp of a park, but probably my favorite park in the city (and I live around the corner from the much more grandiose Brooklyn Bridge Park). I'll bring along a book to read, and sometimes I do, but it's a better place for people watching. Grab a cuppa from the coffee shop on the corner, Tekoa. ”

“Like most of New York City, Dead Horse Bay has a long history of changes. Over the years, much of old New York has been torn down, replaced, torn down again, and replaced again by new buildings and people, and the layers of history are all but forgotten. Not true at Dead Horse Bay, where remnants of the past litter the beach today.”

“When you planned your trip to New York City you probably didn’t contemplate being able to dip your toes into the East River! At Pebble Beach, you can walk down to the water, watch it lap up against the land and take a pebble for a souvenir. The water is clean enough that the Brooklyn Bridge Boathouse sponsors a free kayaking program every summer where you can get 20 minutes free of kayak time and get out into the river, It is really an unusual experience that not many travelers know about. It is NOT something you will forget. Bring a waterproof camera!”

“The idea to create a promenade in Brooklyn Heights came about in the 1800s, but the Brooklyn Heights Promenade wasn't actually built until the 1950s. Now, this popular pedestrian walkway offers stellar views of lower Manhattan, Governors Island, Staten Island, and the waterfront. Lined with benches, there is ample space to relax and watch the city from this charming promenade. And if you look down from the Brooklyn Promenade, you'll see a park lining the waterfront. This is Brooklyn Bridge Park, a local favorite destination. Brooklyn Bridge Park is an 85‐acre, sustainable waterfront park stretching 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River shoreline. The park is popular with runners and cyclists, and it's also home to a roller rink, a pop-up pool, soccer fields, kayaking, the NYC Ferry, annual festivals, notable restaurants, and much more. How To Get There To get to the promenade: You can take the 2 or 3 train to Clark Street, which will leave you just steps from the promenade. You can also take the R to Court St.-Borough Hall or the 2, 3, 4, or 5 train to Borough Hall, and walk down Montague Street until you reach the promenade. To access to Brooklyn Bridge Park: Take the same trains, but walk down Joralemon Street, where you will find an entrance to the park. You can also enter from DUMBO, or take a ferry to Brooklyn Bridge Park. What to Do There The beauty of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade is its simplicity. Runners enjoy the promenade, but most of the visitors stroll and relax when they visit this scenic spot. The idea of a promenade where people from the city take in views and socialize seems almost dated in concept, but this walkway attracts a steady crowd. It's a favorite for photos with a background of Lower Manhattan. There's also a 9/11 tribute and an image display that shows Lower Manhattan when the twin towers were part of the skyline. It's an ideal spot for a casual lunch on a bench, and it's also made our list for one of the best places to kiss in Brooklyn if you want to bring your sweetie and snuggle. After a walk along the promenade, consider exploring the neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. This historic area is filled with brownstone-lined streets. Exit the promenade and walk down Montague Street, the main street for the area. Montague Street has numerous restaurants and boutiques and is also dotted with chain stores. Make a left off of Montague Street and head toward the Brooklyn Historical Society at 128 Pierrepont Street. The historical society is a wonderful wood-paneled library that offers interesting exhibits featuring highlights of the borough, including the waterfront, local businesses, Brooklyn icons such as Jackie Robinson, and more, as well as an active calendar of lectures and movies. Be sure to leave enough time to take a leisurely walk around Brooklyn Heights, soaking in the detail of the architectural gems that can be found on almost every street in the area. For more ideas of what to do in Brooklyn Heights, check out our list of the nine things you shouldn't miss while visiting this part of Brooklyn. Brooklyn Heights was once home to many literary legends including Norman Mailer, Truman Capote, Carson McCullers, Arthur Miller, H.P. Lovecraft, and many others. Each September the neighborhood hosts the Brooklyn Book Festival. Exit Brooklyn Heights by walking down Joralemon Street toward the waterfront and enter Brooklyn Bridge Park. Just to note, there are several options for entering the park. If you want to visit the park and not the promenade, you can enter on Atlantic Avenue or in DUMBO. Once in the park, you can enjoy many activities. A visit to the park can include a barbecue, there are numerous picnic areas in the park with grills that are free to use. Get there early because people love to host BBQs in the warmer months. After you've filled up on some grilled food, you should explore the park. From spring through fall, the Roller Rink at Pier 2 is open. Admission is free but it's $7 to rent skates. The venue hosts several events, including a Leading Ladies Skate Party, where a live DJ plays hits from leading female artists while you skate. The rink also offers free admission skate days (you still have to pay for skates). Located near the roller rink, you'll also find bocce and shuffleboard courts. For adventurous water fun, consider kayaking. The Brooklyn Bridge Boathouse offers free kayaking (between Piers 1 and 2) from the first weekend in June through the end of August. You'll get a life vest, and learn the basics of kayaking as they keep watch over you. There's a 20-minute limit to your time on the water. You can also make your way up to Jane's Carousel, a restored 1922 carousel on the waterfront. Kids will love it, and it's a must-do activity if you are on a family vacation. The carousel is open year-round and tickets are $2.”
