East River State Park


East River State Park

East River State Park is a public park located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. The park stretches along the East River near North 9th and 10th Streets, and offers unobstructed views of the Williamsburg Bridge and Midtown Manhattan.

The park is built on a recovered shipping dock, and was opened in 2007. Unlike other nearby parks, it closes at dusk. The state park rules also prohibit dogs and bicycle riding.
