LUXE City Guides - New York
Begin at Park Row and Centre St. (at City Hall) for the 45 min walk over the 1883 bridge with fab city vistas. On Brooklyn side, take the first exit left and down the stairs to Cadman Plaza E., head down cobbled Washington St. and stroll until you reach Brooklyn Bridge Park. Stop for pics or go left and left again, then right into Water St. If it’s cold, grab a hot choc at Jacques Torres at #66, or if it’s warm, walk until you reach the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory for a lick with views. The River Café / 718 522 5200 / is also here, also with stagger Manhattan scenes, or skip up Old Fulton St. for yum pizza at 1 Front St. / Grimaldi’s / 718 858 4300. Sated? Walk it off on the return hike – take a left down Front St. all the way to Washington St., then a right to make your way back to the bridge. Easy as pie!
