If there is a postcard-perfect picture of a New York City afternoon, it’s one taken at Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park under a bright sky, on a grass of green, in between two great bridges of lower Manhattan, and the city skyline just across the sparkling East River. It’s a coveted spot for weekend picnickers, a mere nine acres, located on the edge of Brooklyn, in the artistic-industrial Dumbo neighborhood. The park’s entrance sits right next to an old tobacco warehouse, now a roofless, red brick structure and can’t-miss landmark. Bring a blanket, the kids, and a Frisbee, for a day of soaking up some summer sun…with some incredible views. Construction is underway on the new Brooklyn Bridge Park which will consist of 85 acres of green space, including the current, adjacent Brooklyn Bridge Park.
