City Views: Brooklyn Bridge Park

While Shelby is off exploring other countries I thought I would do a fun little series sharing some of my favorite views of New York City.

I can't think of a more perfect summer day in NYC than a visit to Brooklyn Bridge Park. Between the park, the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the great views of Downtown Manhattan everywhere you look there is something cool to see.  



There are plenty of seating options to relax and enjoy the view. Between traditional picnic tables, benches along the river boardwalk, or a simple blanket laid out on the grass there are plenty of ways to relax and enjoy a day in the park.

The park features a fully restored historic carousel which you can ride for $2.

I recommend you hit up the park on Sundays as it coincides with Smorgasburg!

Until Next Time

P.S. Our last trip to Smorgasburg
