3 mile(s) from Brooklyn Bridge, Though the Brooklyn Bridge is no longer the largest suspension bridge in the world (as it was when it opened in 1883), it’s still an iconic New York City landmark. More than 100,000 cars pass between the Gothic towers every day, while the pedestrians and sightseers on the upper walkway number in the thousands. Whether you’re traveling by car, bike or foot, you’ll get spectacular views of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Heights.
1.8 mile(s) from Prospect Park, Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux—the visionary designers behind Central Park—Prospect Park offers Brooklynites a chance to get back in touch with nature. Soak up the sunshine in the sprawling Long Meadow, take a guided hike to forage for wild herbs or explore the Ravine, one of the few remaining indigenous forests in the city.
3 mile(s) from Brooklyn Bridge Park, Unlike the sprawling meadows of Prospect Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park wasn’t built to replicate the area’s serene natural environment. Instead, the park transformed a defunct shipping and storage complex into an urban playground complete with terraces, picnic areas and athletic fields. Don’t leave without a ride on Jane’s Carousel, the park’s beautifully restored 1920’s merry-go-round.
3 mile(s) from Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Those searching for a little peace and quiet would do well to spend a few hours at this verdant oasis. The garden, which abuts two other neighborhood gems—The Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park—was founded in 1910 and features hundreds of types of flora, laid out over 52 acres. Each spring, crowds descend on the space for the Sakura Matsuri Festival, during which hundreds of trees bloom along the Cherry Esplanade.
0.8 mile(s) from Sunset Park, Sunset Park is one of New York’s hidden treasures. Tucked away in the Brooklyn neighborhood that bares its name, this park is famous for its breathtaking vista. Sunset Park offers, at sunset, and at all times, stunning views of the rugged skyline of Manhattan. From the park’s highest point, you can see the Statue of Liberty, vibrant Brooklyn neighborhoods, and the green hills of Staten Island and New Jersey. Turning your gaze inward to the park, you see an equally diverse terrain: a state-of-the-art swimming pool, green fields, pedestrian walkways, a sand volleyball court, a recreation center, and a living memorial commemorating September 11th.
0.5 mile(s) from Greenwood Cemetery, Founded in 1838 as a rural cemetery in Greenwood Heights, this site was inspired by the Pére Lachaise Cemetery in Paris and Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Having vied with Niagara Falls as New York State’s greatest tourist attraction, it gained landmark status in 1966. Filled with Victorian mausoleums, cherubs and gargoyles, Green-Wood is the resting place of some half-million New Yorkers, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Leonard Bernstein and Boss Tweed. But there’s more to do here than grave-spot: Check out the massive Gothic arch at the main entrance or climb to the top of Battle Hill, a pivotal spot during the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776.
10 mile(s) from Coney Island Cyclone, This historic wooden coaster dates back to 1927, during Coney Island’s glory days. Now a national historic landmark and part of the new Luna Park, the Cyclone still thrills riders every spring and summer. After you’ve gotten your fill of the amusement park, don’t forget to grab a beer and hot dog from the original Nathan’s Famous.
10 mile(s) from New York Aquarium, At New York's one and only aquarium, see a living re-creation of the Pacific coastline, and catch sight of various East River Species, plus some truly awesome sharks and sea jellies. Fantasize about extending your summer as you visit Glover's Reef, a 150,000-gallon tank stocked with 35 species—give or take—of marine life from the coast of Belize, including jawfish and moray eels.
7.5 mile(s) from Brooklyn Brewery, Commercial brewery, founded in 1987 and located in an 1860s-era former steel foundry, features a Tasting Room, warehouse and a 200-seat facility for community events.
