Stretching from Orange Street to Remsen Street, the Brooklyn Heights esplanade provides enthralling views of Manhattan, especially in the evening when the lights of the city sparkle across the East River. Find a bench and take in the skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge—an impressive 1883 steel suspension bridge designed by John Augustus Roebling. Frank Gehry's majestic 8 Spruce Street, Manhattan's tallest residential tower, is visible, as well as
the new World Trade Center tower. Below the promenade is the Brooklyn–Queens Expressway and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
