East River State Park

I found this place by accident two years ago, this is how it usually happens to me lately, and I was totally blown away. This part of Williamsburg, one of the most hyped Brooklyn neighborhoods, the one no-one cared about over a decade ago, happened to be one of the most desired places to live and hang out in right now.  Just right at the East River the new blocks and a very cozy square have been built. This is a new spot for Brooklyners to admire the sunset. Why here? Because no matter which bench you choose to sit on, you’re able to see the Manhattan skyline right in front of you.  And when the Sun goes down Manhattan looks like it’s made of gold. And when you turn your head left you’ll see the Freedom tower. This is truly a new place. You don’t wanna miss it.
