Picnicking in McCarren Park is fun for the simple reason that it will probably be easy to get a lot of your friends to join you because of its location, and there's tons of good food in the immediate area with which to furnish your picnic basket. In fact, there's so much good food nearby that instead of doing the lazy thing and grabbing sandwiches at Saltie or breakfast tacos at Briskettown (both totally viable options!) you should head over to the Bedford Cheese Shop and get an array of cheeses and crackers and olives and charcuterie to enjoy on your blanket in the park. That is the perfect way to enjoy a picnic in this
over-crowded bustling part of north Brooklyn.
