Brooklyn Stories and Tips

Williamsburg waterfront

Lot on the East River Photo, Brooklyn, New York

This is an unoffical waterfront "park" on Kent Avenue from North 7th to North 10th, that people in the neighborhood retreat to for great views of Manhattan, big skies, fishing (if you can believe it) and an alternative place to walk their dogs. I wouldn't come here at night, a lot of homeless people converge here in the evenings. During the day there are actually a good number of people here, just enjoying the space, which is obviously appreciated in this densely populated city. Be aware that there are a lot of debris and glass and the ground is rumored to be very polluted. Still, I enjoy just hanging out and watching the water from the East River lap the shore.

Been to this destination?
