    It's a great photo spot and you'll find the surrounding neighborhood of DUMBO interesting too. By next year they should have portions of the new Brooklyn Bridge Park (close to here) completed, so walk over for a view of Manhattan and have lunch in Brooklyn Heights which is a stunning neighborhood.
