As you can see, Brooklyn Bridge Park provides a stunning view of lower Manhattan.  I’ve recently begun experimenting with the panorama feature on my phone’s camera with mixed results, but I think this was one of the better photos it’s yielded.  This was not the best time of day to be taking photos at this particular location, but it still produced a decent photo.  One quick note: there’s a helipad way down there in lower Manhattan.  If watching helicopters land is your bag, Brooklyn Bridge Park is the place for you.
