​One of the best places in Brooklyn to view Manhattan's famed skyline and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and the lesser known Manhattan Bridge. Easily accessible by subway. Visit in the morning or around sunset for the best photos.

Stroll along the river with the best views on Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan on the background. Must do when visiting NYC.

As part of your Brooklyn visit, you should definitely include this park - a short stroll from DUMBO and a great spot to sit relax and enjoy views of Manhattan.
