More spectacular views of Lower Manhattan can be seen from the Fulton Landing Pier
Fulton Landing Pier it’s perfect place to linger and people watch. As well as being the home of the famous Brooklyn Icecream Factory.
Fulton Ferry Landing pier, at the foot of Old Fulton Street, is one of Brooklyn’s most historic sites, marking the location of the first ferry service between Brooklyn and Manhattan in 1642.
It forms part of the Brooklyn Bridge Park that encompasses a variety of parks, greenaways and beaches.
The refurbished pier was re-opened in 1997, offering amazing views of the harbour, Brooklyn Bridge and the Lower Manhattan skyline.
The landing is still a great place for watching the comings and goings of the East River.
The landing includes custom-designed marine railings that feature words from Walt Whitman’s famous “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” poem.
There’s also a lovely, but very expensive, place to eat in the form of the five star River Cafe. Quaint and cute looking but SUPER COSTLY… but with a view that almost justifies the price!
