  • It is a lovely walk and the fact that bicycles are restricted makes it extra nice. On a hot summer day it is a nice green oasis, the neighborhood is beautiful and views are great.

  • Amazing place to take photos of the Lower Manhattan skyline and to people watch. Lots of benches for relaxing and a nice breeze from the water.

  • Great place for running / walking! Lots of space to take in the view and enjoy the breeze off the water during the summer. The various piers each have a different personality to them, makes for a nice place to frequent.
  • Loved since i was a teenager. 40 years of being one of my secret getaways. It still makes me happy. you can see the city skyline, harbor and the spectacular Brooklyn Bridge Park.
