Down Town Walking Tour:
The Promanade in Brooklyn leaves the most breath-taking views of
Manhattan Island in the City. This is one of the more unusual
views, actually from the BQE directly under the park. The Promanade
is a historical quirk. Robert Moses wanted to build the BQE right
through the center of Brooklyn Heights. The Neighborhood fought back
leading to area being the first Landmark community. As a result,
Moses had to compromise and the BQE now travels under the Promanade,
and above is the park.
So this bright piece of civil engineering was a complete accident.
