Though it is only one-third of a mile long, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade is one of the most famous and recognizable landmarks in the borough. Though one might not be familiar with the Promenade itself, anyone familiar with images of the Manhattan skyline taken from east of the island is most likely very familiar with the unparalleled vantage point provided by the Promenade. The site of the Promenade and the area's naturally elevated position attracted settlers to the spot from as early as the seventeenth century. When Robert Moses designed and constructed the BQE in the 1940s, he included the Promenade in his design. The Promenade draws artists, tourists, and locals to marvel at the view of the harbor and skyline, and enjoy one of the world's most iconic vistas. Now a fully integrated part of Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Promenade is accessible via an elevated footpath from the Park below and from entrances on either end.
