This is a must-see destination in the downtown-Brooklyn-Brooklyn-Heights area. Its clean, spacious, comfy and serene. Not really what you expect when you think of NYC. Pier 5 is dedicated to active recreation and features playing fields capable of configurations for soccer, lacrosse, rugby, flag football and ultimate Frisbee. Players and spectators can watch the game from the bleachers and benches situated along the sidelines. You can also grab lunch anywhere nearby and find a table or bench which are both in abundance and just enjoy the gorgeous view of the city. Don’t forget to bring the kids to the play areas located adjacent to Picnic Peninsula. These two playgrounds feature equipment for older and younger children.
The perimeter of the Pier includes a 30-foot wide promenade that offers magnificent views of lower Manhattan, Governors Island and the New York Harbor. The promenade features three viewfinders, one of which is ADA accessible.
