Let's Visit Brooklyn Bridge Park

July 23, 2020


Hello blog friends.  Let's take a virtual tour of Brooklyn Bridge Park.

I thought it would be fun to show you our outing that Mr. JCL and I took last summer.

We took a ferry ride to Brooklyn Bridge Park.  We sat inside the boat and enjoyed the sights.  



It was a beautiful summer day and we enjoyed looking at the water and the view of New York City.


Look, we can see the Statue of Liberty.


The ferry dropped us off at Brooklyn Bridge Park.


We enjoyed walking along the water and looking at the wonderful views of the city.


Look it's a photo of me!


We are getting closer to the Brooklyn Bridge.



Inside this old building is the Ample Hills Creamery.


We were both starting to get hungry, so we stopped into Shake Shack for lunch.  It was so good!  Mr. JCL had a chicken sandwich and I had a cheeseburger.  The cold brew coffee is a winner.

You can see below the long line to eat at Grimaldi's.  It's known to be Brooklyn's best pizza.  The long line is one of the reasons why I've never eaten there.


You can ride a bike around the area on a Citibike.  Look, you can see the pretty views of the city.


We took the ferry ride back home and this time we sat at the top part of the boat.  It was the perfect day and we enjoyed the boat ride and visiting the park.


When it's safe to travel, Brooklyn Bridge Park is a fun place to visit.

  4. I used to have a HUGE travel list. Covid has made me rethink things, and now I only have a few. Brooklyn Bridge is one that is left on my list. Happy to see the views and the recommendations for places to possibly eat while there!

  13. I lived in Brooklyn most of my life so I enjoyed seeing one of my favorite areas on your blog! We often went to Jane's Carousel on the northern part of the park. It's also a great place to pick up a taxi boat and take a cooling ride along the east River.

  15. Fun!! We live a few hours away, so we like to take sight-seeing trips into the city. I did not know that you can just take a ferry over to the Brooklyn Bridge. I'd never thought to look it up. Now I want to do this!
