  • Brooklyn Bridge

    City Hall Park New York, NY 10038
    718-802-0603 The prototype is in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is news to most New Yorkers. But despite that depressing bit of information, the Brooklyn Bridge is really a sight to behold.

Manhattan entrance: Park Row and Centre Street, across from City Hall Park. Brooklyn entrance: Stairs to Cadman Plaza East and Prospect Street, ramp to Johnson and Adams Streets. More >>

    212-NEW-YORK Ah, corruption, greed, scandalsa|here is where it all began. Most people only come take a look at City Hall Park because they are on their way to the Brooklyn Bridge, which is shameful. SHAMEFUL. The north end of the park houses Tweed Court House.

The building directly to the south is City Hall, which is, well, City Hall. More >>
