Want a great view of the New York City skyline or a quiet place to escape the city? Then visit the Brooklyn Promenade. The Brooklyn Promenade is a 24-hour park that is above the BQE. It overlooks Brooklyn Bridge Park and provides the best view of the New York City skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. There is a bridge that connects the promenade to Brooklyn Bridge Park but it is currently closed for repairs. To get to the park you can easily follow the coastline.
The promenade is a great place to come when I want to clear my mind and appreciate the view of the city. I love to sit on the benches, write poetry, people watch and really take in the scenery. People often are friendly and keep things mellow so everyone can enjoy themselves. Not only is this a great place to hang out and relax, this is a great place to go for a nice run or jog. It can get pretty hot during the day because there is not much shade but during the early evening and night, the temperature is pretty comfortable.
This strip isn’t usually busy during the winter but can get many visitors during the spring and summer months.
