Beautiful scenery and chilled fresh air. Trails are great, just not long enough.

Great views out over the East River and back toward New York Harbor, and some interesting historical markers along the way. One of the most iconic bridges in the world. But man does it get crowded! Keep out of the bike lane unless you want to get run over. Nice walk to DUMBO where you can have a quick lunch, then return to Manhattan.

Crossed this off my to-do list. Such a historically important bridge, was cool to walk through history a little bit. I went at 7am on a drizzly Thursday morning, so crowds weren't too bad.

Stunning views of the Verrazano Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, Staten Island and the NYC skyline. It’s challenging if you make it. Otherwise it can just be relaxing. Check out the 69th St Pier, Verrazano gardens, ball fields, Shore Rd Park and my fave..Owls Head Park. There are free movies on the green in the summer months. Or take the ferry to a trendy Bklyn neighborhood or NYC!

Love this place

Did this one at night. Exhilarating walk above the river with cars flight by and city lights all around!


Cranford Rose Garden makes a great date destination when the roses are in full bloom.

Amazing scenery

Perfect for walking/running with your pup or peaceful enough by yourself. There is several places with broken glass but overall perfect for what we were looking for.

Stunning views, but so crowded.

I have always enjoyed walking across bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge walk was most awesome

Of course there is plenty of walking experiences here in the different gardens. Area dedicated to kids as well. They are undergoing renovations in some parts (2017-2018) but only one area at a time, and so much else to see.
This is a regular spot for my wife and I to do a quick walk through or a leisurely stroll with friends and their kids.
There are birding guided tours which are fun too!

My favorite view of the city, especially when you continue walking along to the Heights.

I love this view of the city.

I like bringing the dogs here but there is so much glass in the sand it can be a little scary.

Lovely park, especially in Spring for cherry blossoms.

Great for a leisurely walk with my dog. Ideal for running or biking. Not great for hiking.

Iconic thing to do when in NYC. We walked from Brooklyn towards Manhattan so we could see Manhattan as we crossed the bridge. Very busy with lots of people and bikes.

My wife and I did this walk for my birthday...this was one of many activities that she had planned for me. The walk offers great views and the bridge is very unique in its architecture. BE CAREFUL...the bikers seem like they don't want to share and the travel way too fast :)

I enjoy walking across bridges. Brooklyn Bridge was an awesome one to cross with the crowd out of NYC.

Very beautiful botanical garden located in the heart of Brooklyn. Nice escape from the busy city and buildings. Beautiful flowers, gardens, lakes, and waterfall. We were there in the Spring and the Cherry trees were in bloom and they were beautiful

Great old cemetery. Some steep hills but views are worth it. Lots of birds here during spring migration. Great spot for warblers. Many famous graves as well.
