The Best Places to See Fall Colors

Fall brings change to Brooklyn Bridge Park every year, most noticeably in the brilliant colors taken on by the Park’s foliage. Here are some of our favorite places to see the autumn leaves.

Emily Warren Roebling Plaza

BBP’s newest section of park offers incredible views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan amongst the changing colors of Fall.

Pier 1

Many visitors enjoy Pier 1’s Harbor View Lawn for its unparalleled views of New York Harbor and Lower Manhattan, but its views of the park can be just as spectacular in the fall. Turn your gaze to this beautiful seasonal display! Or get lost in the leaves on Pier 1’s pathways. These secluded paths offer some of the most immersive fall environments the city has to offer- you might even forget you’re in one.

Squibb Park Bridge

Take in the views and the colorful mix of leaves in all shades of red, orange and yellow from above!

Pier 3

Pier 3 and the gorgeous Granite Terrace, on the Pier 3 Greenway Terrace has much to offer in terms of bright, beautiful foliage.

Pier 6

Pier 6’s playgrounds and their surroundings create a place to seclude yourself in the leaves. These plants become a splendid array of colors in the fall that provides the perfect seasonal setting for kids to play in.

Pier 6 Flower Field

While most people think of fall foliage as brightly colored leaves on trees, a huge amount of seasonal color comes from other sources. Pier 6’s new flower field, designed to stand out in every season, brings its own flair to the fall landscape.
