Walking Along Brooklyn's Waterfront


After breakfast at The River Cafe,
Eric & I start our walk along
I look forward to walking the Brooklyn Bridge after reading David McCullough's

is an institution.

Pier footings reach out across
the East River towards

Brooklyn Bridge Park incorporates six piers with differing activities along the river.  Each section is unique.

Pier 2 offers Handball, Basketball,
Bocce Ball Courts & a lot more...

Much of it is under a giant pavilion, making it usable in different types of weather.

A fellow tourist took this
picture of Eric & me.

Handy signage

Greenway to DUMBO is a

Pier 3 has a large lawn
& a labyrinth.

Comfortable seating with
an amazing view 

Canada Geese visit the pier.

The shoreline changes as we
walk towards Pier 4 &
its beach.

The Picnic Peninsula at Pier 5
has seating & charcoal grills
for park visitors.

Rent a Sailboat at

Pier 5 has acres & acres of
Activity Fields.

Eric & I investigate this
decoratively painted

The retired Fire Boat John J. Harvey shows off Flow Separation, a public art display.  This painting technique was invented by British Painter Norma Wilkinson during World War I to optically distort Navy ships' forms to confuse German U-Boats tracking them as to the distance, direction and speed.

A tree lined walkway takes us
from Pier 6 to Atlantic Avenue.

One last peek at Manhattan before
Eric & I walk to Sahadi's.
