Downtown Brooklyn, known for being the third largest central business district in the city, also happens to be teeming with diverse cultural institutions, compelling museums, ethnic restaurants, scenic waterfront views, and green spaces. With many points of interest and a wide range of activities to keep any New Yorker entertained, downtown Brooklyn is the ideal area to venture off to when you need a break from Manhattan’s hustle and bustle.
The three and a half acre expanse of Brooklyn Bridge Park is worthy of an entire day trip, and multiple ones! The activities and attractions at this waterfront recreational area are endless, with children’s playgrounds, basketball courts, boating, a soccer field, handball courts, bird watching, a pop-up pool, and picnic areas to choose from. Eateries dotting the park include Ample Hills Creamery with lovely baked goods, snacks, and ice cream, along with breakfast foods from Brooklyn Bridge Garden Bar, a lunchtime meal of sandwiches, pizza at Fornino, and Lizzmonade, serving Brooklyn’s artisanal lemonade as well as sangria, beer, and wine for the adults. Those with an eye for arts and culture would delight in the park’s Bargemusic family concerts, Shakespeare at Sunset, and SyFy Movies with a View, amongst other seasonal park events.
