Central Park is to Manhattan as Prospect Park is to Brooklyn. Prospect Park sprawls 526 acres, offering miles of paved trails, open green spaces and man-made waterways. It’s especially beautiful in the fall. Take in the views with a picnic lunch.
If you decide to visit Brooklyn during the winter, head to LeFrak Center at Lakeside Prospect Park Brooklyn for ice skating. It’s fun and often less crowded than the ice skating rink at Central Park!
