Some city parks were built to replicate rustic fields and preserve serene woodland. Brooklyn Bridge Park, however, was not—and that’s precisely why it has become so popular.
In a round-up of the best parks in New York City, Time Out put Brooklyn Bridge Park at the top of the list, citing the views, Jane’s Carousel, and the myriad activities offered as among the park’s attractions.
Other parks on the list include Central Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Prospect Park, and The Hills at Governor’s Island.
While the Park has occasioned no small amount of controversy locally over the last few years, it continues to be a vibrant community space for the borough and the city, with teams, schools, and community groups flocking to it daily, along with the local residents and visitors.
