If for no other reason then to get a good view of New York City, you should head across the East River to Brooklyn and take in the view of NYC’s skyline. It’s a beauty.
People seem to either love Brooklyn or hate it, but I don’t think anyone can deny how perfectly positioned the Brooklyn Bridge Park is to take in New York’s skyline, day or night.
Walk the bridge, take a cab or ride the subway, but get yourself here. :)
