Brooklyn Bridge Park | DUMBO New York


Last week, I mentioned that the Brooklyn Bridge Park was one of my favorite spots in the city.

Or one of my favorite spots just outside the city, more accurately. Brooklyn is just a hop, skip and subway ride away, but I don’t venture off The Island as much as I could or should.

Nonetheless, one recent weekend I trekked across the East River and spent the morning wandering DUMBO, drinking too much coffee and, as a result, trying a number of new restaurants (partially due to my secret agenda to use the restroom — I have a small bladder).

I’ve quickly fallen in love with the DUMBO area (which stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) — particularly the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Brooklyn Heights Promenade areas, as they arguably boast the best views the city. You can see the southern tip of the island (including the Freedom Tower) all the way to buildings along the Upper East Side. In addition, you have camera-worthy views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.

Have you been? If not, the next time you find yourself with a few free hours in New York City and you’re up for a walk, I highly suggest exploring the area. So as long as it’s at least 50 degrees, that is.
