Fort Greene Park

WHERE: 85 S Oxford St., Brooklyn
HOURS: Dawn till dusk
BBQ AREA: Along Myrtle Ave. between N Portland Ave. & St. Edwards St.

Known as a minor hip-hop Mecca, Fort Greene is the illest spot in BK to throw down on some barbecue. As Brooklyn’s first official park, Fort Greene offers 30-plus acres of grassy terrain to claim as your own, and with its thick-trunked tress and shady walkways, there’s no need to worry about too much sun.

The former Revolutionary War site has both tennis and basketball courts on deck if you’re in need of some action or want to get in a quick pick-up game between franks. Chill out and relish a day in the sun with your fellow Brooklynites, but remember to BYOG.
