Brooklyn Bridge Park

1 Main St.
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Best Of
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
