Brooklyn >Brooklyn Bridge Park
This is one of my favorite summertime places in the city -- from movies under the Brooklyn Bridge to ecological volunteer work, it's both a beautiful setting and a relaxing space. Also: they have free public WiFi (no small matter) and are in close proximity to Grimaldi's (expect a line) and the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. In warmer months, Smorgasburg (Sundays at the Tobacco Warehouse) offers gastronomic pleasures of infinite proportions with food vendors beyond your wildest imagination.
The most breathtaking park in Brooklyn hosts views of the East River, the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. You'll see wedding parties, couples strolling, dogs, babies, old folks, young folks -- the gamut of human life comes here. Romantic, with film screenings in the summer and Narnia-like views in the winter of lampposts against a wintry endless wonderland. Ride Jane's Carousel to complete the magic experience, and then return to yummy reality with pizza at Grimaldi's or ice cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.
Best Date Spot in the City. This expansive new park space is steps from cozy neighborhood restaurants and out-of-this-world (with lines to match) homemade ice cream from Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory – all with one powerful unifier: jaw-dropping waterfront views ... of the Manhattan skyline.
Editorial Review. A playground attracts youngsters, while visitors of all ages stretch out on the lawn and enjoy views of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
