Tips from locals
People don’t realize the amazing and huge parks carved out all over NYC. Prospect park is one of the biggest and just up the street. There is a restaurant, botanical garden and lots of walking or biking paths to enjoy. There is even horse back riding available.
Take a walk through the meadows and paths, enjoy the lakeside or visit the food stalls on sundays
Our favorite park! It is huge and has many places to visit and chill. Close to the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Library and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
Fields of rolling green, a lake, a zoo and so much more. What else do you need in a park?! One of my favorite parks in New York.
We are only a 15 minute walk away from this historic and gorgeous park. Grab a coffee and bagel and enjoy morning sightseeing on a park bench or have a picnic in one of the many fields. If you happen to travel with pets, we love the huge crew of dogs that gather off leash for a weekend runaround.
The nearest off-leash field. Off-leash hours are 9pm - 9am. If you go - tell the other humans that you know Columbo & Anthony. You'll instantly make friends and feel like a true Brooklynite.
This is considered “The Central Park of Brooklyn” by locals. This large park has expansive walking and biking trails along fields, woods, and a lake. This is a great place to enjoy a picnic and, in the summer, they have many free evening events like live music and movies on the lawn.
The lovely Prospect Park is a 10-15 minute walk from us and really gives a glimpse of Brooklyn life. Turn left on Ft. Hamilton and walk straight- you’ll run smack into the park. In the summer time there are non-stop events including free concerts, movies, and dance performances. In the winter there…
586 Acre park to explore and exercise. Has everything from bike paths, horse trails, a zoo, baseball fields, playgrounds, a carousel, and more!

“One of the most celebrated and esteemed venues in the world to see your favorite artists and sports figures. Yep, its the home of the Brooklyn Nets! Fairly new and already world-renowned, it is sought after by superstars and patrons, alike. There are no celebrities that will not grace the stages of the Barclays Center. Purchase tickets online for upcoming events before you arrive. An experience you won't ever forget. Directions: Get there by Train or Ride Shares. In the downtown Brooklyn area, Parking is expensive and street parking scarce. Almost any train you can think of will transfer one way or another to the Atlantic Ave - Barclay Center Station (a major hub and directly across the street from this venue). From Canarsie: Walk or take a ride share to the L Train (a 6 min walk - E 103rd St to Flatlands, left to Rockaway Pkwy, then a right to the station). Take the L Train at Rockaway Parkway Station to Broadway Junction (10 min ride); then transfer to the C train to Lafayette Avenue; walk to Barclays Center approx 2 blocks). Trains that stop directly at the Barclays Center are: B, D, Q, N, 2, 3, 4, 5. ”
