Less than a mile long, yet still one of the most scenic stretches in the city, the Brooklyn Promenade proves that bigger is not always better. This bench-lined path is the ideal locale for strolls and long conversations, with the occasional pause-and-gawk at the picturesque vistas, or for sharing a wordless moment while watching the sun disappear into the skyline.
