Another Reason to Run in the Summertime
One of the nice things in Brooklyn is that you can constantly be surprised by the nice things that show up.
For example, the new addition to the Brooklyn Bridge Park that's open through Labor Day. Located at Pier 1, across from the River Cafe by the water on the Brooklyn Heights/Dumbo line, it's a smattering of picnic tables, grassy hills, and three very important things for an evening saunter, say, over the Brooklyn Bridge and back:
-- Tons of Porto-Potties
-- A nice misty spray thingamajig that cools you off without getting you sopping you wet.
-- A working outside bar, with decent beer ($6-$7 a pop) so you can properly relax after your run.
Is this not a great thing? Sign says it's open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
