In Brooklyn’s tiny DUMBO neighborhood is one of the city's most diverse (and smallest) parks, offering up programs of jazz, classical, and countless other events. And though there’s something for everyone--from Shakespeare to festivals of trumpet music to free movies to activities for children--the best part about this spot is the view. Lower Manhattan hardly looks as good except when you're sprawled out on a great lawn with a bottle of white wine at hand, fronted by the Metropolitan Opera or a great rock band. Hurricane Sandy couldn’t even squash the spirit here. The famous riverside carousel emerged from the flooded water unharmed. --Dale Eisinger
