this was taken from weehawkin just off of kennedy east. Its a small side street but still has the walkway on the cliff.

and this was from the park between the brooklyn bridge and manhattan bridge.

Will be going back to both now that I have an UWA lens.

Wow.

Anyone want to take me on a free trip? I will let you fondle my nifty fifty in return.

Ahh, google maps, now why didn't I think of that? Thanks. I guess the park is the vacant-lot looking area right there on the water north/east of New Dock Street? Being unfamilair with the area, is it safe to be down there alone in the evening? Or is it a bad area?

I wouldn't go there alone in the evening. But I'm a bit paranoid having grown up in NYC, working in the courts for the past 30 years.

Going over the battery tunnel is not the best way to get to the promenade as you're essentially going past it. The Brooklyn Bridge is the best way.

Castle Point in Hoboken is another one...and you can stop by Benny Tudino's for the best (and biggest) slice in town!

I think this thread was a great idea, as I have often wondered the same thing myself. Where is the best place to shoo the NYC Skyline. Some days on way down the turnpike from the meadowlands the city looks so pretty, I wish I could stop and take a few shots..

the park between the bridges is on plymouth street. This pic is not up to date as the park is finished and there is kind of a ampetheater style stone wall leading down to the water.

there are rangers in the park and its very active, that area of dumbo is very upscale, manhattan prices. i worked on a movie that shot there and it was busy till at least 10pm, to the left of new dock st, is a hazmat unit, and lots of cops nearby cause of proximity to bridges.
