Best Place To Get Hit In the Head With A Soccer Ball New York 2008 - McCarren Park

McCarren Park

McCarren Park

776 Lorimer St.

Brooklyn, NY 11222


Map & Details>>

From a distance, the McCarren Park track may look harmless, but during the morning hours of 7 to 11, the track transforms into an obstacle course of an unusual sort. In the center of the track, players preparing for games later in the day practice by kicking roughly a gazillion soccer balls every which way. So your jog requires vigilance?and even then, you?ll probably end up getting hit. The track also has an assortment of other distractions, from wandering toddlers and kids riding bikes to the smell of food vendors from the sidelines. No pain, no gain.
