The place which is commonly regarded as the most romantic spot in NYC is the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Why is that so…. well the video gives you a good idea.
Gorgeous at any time of day, an evening stroll on the Promenade gives you the best view ever of Manhattan at night, ablaze with lights. Morning walks here or even a quiet sit downs are terrific too, but just now there are a lot of earthworks going on as Brooklyn bridge Park is being refashioned into yet another premier waterside park in NYC so instead of blissful qiet in the morning you might have the sound of cranes and earthmovers.
So waht makes this place magical? The Promenade is high above the East River and offers sweeping views of the skyline of Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. Watching the sun go down from the promenade as the sun goes down and the lights come up is as good as it gets.
