This park is the perfect destination spot for a picnic. It has it all—ample grassy spots on which to lay your blanket, trees to shade you as you laze away the day, and a view of all New York Harbor stretched before you, which is spectacular during (duh) sunset, but pretty damn nice at any other time of day as well. Plus, Sunset Park is home to some of Brooklyn's best cheap eats, so be sure to fill up your picnic basket before trekking up that big hill and claiming your spot. For a summertime picnic, you can't go wrong with a bánh mi from Ba Xuyên—my favorites are the grilled pork and the meatball. At just $4 a sandwich, you can also grab an avocado shake or a Thai iced coffee and have a filling and delicious picnic for under $10 a person.
