The best waterfront in NYC offers a unique view of the lower Manhattan skyline, aquatic features, such as a salt marsh filled with native cordgrass, and Jane’s Carousel, a restored ride from 1922.


Starting in July 2010, the park's Pier 1 will have vendors serving tacos, crab rolls, wine, beer, and ice cream. (The city will make about $120,000 a year from the deal.)


On extremely hot days, be careful -- in July, 2010, temperatures on the black rubber playground here reached a city-wide high of 171 degrees Fahrenheit.


Brooklyn Bridge Park offers spectacular photo opportunities of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. The rocky area by the water is the optimal spot for shots.


For an elevated water view climb the Granite Prospect, a set of stairs fashioned out of more granite salvaged from the scrapped Roosevelt Island Bridge project.
