Brooklyn Bridge Park - Pier 1
Pier 1 is the largest of the Brooklyn Bridge Park’s piers, and the only one built on landfill rather than supported by wooden marine piles. Pier 1 includes two sweeping lawns, Bridge View Lawn and Harbor View Lawn, a playground at the northern edge with play equipment for younger children, a stunning waterfront promenade, and a series of tree-lined pathways that provide a varied waterfront experience. Its gardens include four freshwater ponds and a tidal Salt Marsh that recreate the waterfront’s natural environments, as well as beautiful ornamental plantings. Home to much of the Park’s programming, Pier 1 is a stunning space that feels secluded from its bustling urban surroundings. The Citywide Ferry and New York Water Taxi offer service from the ferry dock on the Pier’s northern end.
