Best Place to See a Really Really Really Fat Goldfish (2008)

JAPANESE POND

Lest you think this will be an ad for adult diapers—it ain't. It's about a little hidden gem of an oasis nestled inside Prospect Park's Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the JAPANESE POND. "One of the oldest and most visited Japanese-inspired gardens outside Japan," and opened to the public in 1915, it's one of those great Brooklyn spots because, well, because it's soun-Brooklyn. And I haven't forgotten—be sure to look in the pond. Tell me that ain't a fat goldfish! Fuhgedaboudit and sayonara.
