Let’s meetup and have a barbeque picnic at Brooklyn Bridge Park (http://www.brooklynbridgepark.org/the-park/pier-5) Picnic Peninsula.
We’ll enjoy a fresh-cooked meal on Hibachi-style grill tops,
gather at picnic tables made of salvage wood, or relax under one of durable, wind and weather resistant umbrellas and of course we’ll be surrounded by the irresistible and breathtaking panorama of Manhattan from one side and remarkable historical down town Brooklyn from another.
No doubt, we’ll create artisan quality barbeque meal, talk about future endeavors and feel the spirit of New York City.
