Brooklyn Bridge Park
There are many things to love about Brooklyn Bridge Park—the view is ripped from a postcard, you're right by the water's edge, you can go for a spin on the carousel if that's your thing, etc. But what's also kind of amazing to think about is that this entire area was under water after Hurricane Sandy struck, and yet has now fully recovered. This is kind of incredible, and serves as a reminder to appreciate what you've got when you've got it. So picnic here, and keep an eye on the seemingly calm waters in front of you, because those waters are ready to rise up at any time. Um. So also, get a pizza at Juliana's in DUMBO. The lines are never as bad as they are at Grimaldi's and the pizza is pretty much the same. I recommend two pizza extremes here: the pepperoni and sausage pizza, but also the marinara pizza, which is vegan, but delicious and studded with garlic. What should you drink with your pizza? Beer, of course. Head over to Peas & Pickles and pick up a couple of six-packs of Tecate or something. Enjoy your cheap eats and your million-dollar view.
