Photo by myself, in Brooklyn Heights.
Just at the edge of Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Promenade overlooks the East River. This view looks north west. Beyond, you can see the Brooklyn Bridge and Empire State Building.
It's a romantic park. The Promenade is what it sounds like - a straight stretch along the water. To the right out of frame are beautiful, historic homes. To the left, the water. I'm sure that when the Promenade first opened, couples dressed up in their fanciest clothing and sauntered up and down this walkway.
Since the sun sets in the west, this is an ideal place to watch the sunset, as it descends beyond the Manhattan skyline.
