Fodor's Expert Review Brooklyn Heights Promenade

Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn Promenade/Boardwalk
Free Fodor's Choice
Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
Strolling this mile-long path, famous for its magnificent Manhattan views, you might find it surprising to learn that its origins were purely functional: the promenade was built as a sound barrier to protect nearby brownstones from highway noise. Find a bench and take in the skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge; in the evening, the lights of Manhattan sparkle across the East River. Below are the Brooklyn–Queens Expressway and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
