Any trip to Brooklyn would be incomplete without a jaunt in Brooklyn Bridge Park, which spans the waterfront in DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. The park has gotten a makeover in recent years, with new amenities like bocce courts, a bouldering wall, a roller skating rink, and a pop-up pool in the summertime. In warmer months, top Brooklyn vendors set up shop in the park, so you can take a break mid-bike ride with ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery or a lobster roll from Luke's Lobster. The park snakes along the East River, offering unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline from almost every part, but the most picturesque spot is the section near Jane's Carousel, between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge.
