Every visitor to New York has heard about Central Park, but Brooklyn's massive Prospect Park rightfully deserves its fame. Featuring fantastic events, green spaces, and the famous Grand Army Plaza arch at the main entrance to the Park, built in 1892, the "Jewel of Brooklyn" receives more than six million visitors annually. Visit the magnificant 1905 Beaux-Arts boathouse, currently under renovation, or rent a pedal boat and glide across the 60-acre Lake Prospect. Take a stroll in the 90-acre Long Meadow or take the kids for a ride on the historic 1912 wooden carousel, brought from Coney Island in 1952. Whatever options you'll choose, enjoy some time in the quiet, wide-open spaces of Prospect Park.
