New York (Brooklyn) Cruises Travel Tips

  • Pack layers. The weather in Brooklyn can sometimes be unpredictable, so it's best to be prepared for all possible situations.
  • If there are many sights that you want to see in and around Brooklyn, consider purchasing the New York CityPASS. This can save you money on some of the city's top attractions.
  • Try to take the ferry if you have time. It's one of the most popular ways to travel around and offers some of the best views of both New York City's and Brooklyn's skyline! 
  • Plan on transportation times, taking a bit longer than you'd expect. Brooklyn is pretty big, and if you plan on visiting more of New York City, you could spend quite a bit of time stuck in traffic or even inside the subway.
  • When you order pizza here, don't use silverware. Though you might do that at home, it's not proper etiquette to eat your pizza like that in Brooklyn (or the rest of New York City, for that matter)!

New York (Brooklyn) Cruises Things To Do

  • Walk around the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
    Walk around the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

    The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a gorgeous outdoor area in Brooklyn. It was first established back in 1910 and covers over 50 acres of land. It truly is an oasis in the middle of the borough of Brooklyn! You'll forget you're in the city for a little while.   The inside of the garden is split up into different sections so that the varying types of flowers and plants stay apart from each other. Some of these park sections include the Cranford Rose Garden, the Japanese Hill, and Pond Garden, and the Plant Family Collection. One of the most picturesque parts of the garden that you won't want to miss is the Osborne Garden!

    You Should Know

      The garden does have hours that it's open, and it can get quite busy. To avoid the crowds, visit first thing in the morning when it opens.  

  • Shop at the Brooklyn Flea Market
    Shop at the Brooklyn Flea Market

    The Brooklyn Flea Market is one of the best shopping experiences you can have while in this borough! It officially opened in 2008 by two of Brooklyn's residents, Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby.    The flea market here is the best place to get vintage antiques, old jewelry, and local art from some of Brooklyn's artists. You're bound to find something while you're here that you'll want to purchase! Plus, this flea market has consistently been ranked as one of the best in the country by Travel + Leisure and Fodor's. 

    You Should Know

      The market is only held between April and October because it's an outdoor market. It's hard to have a market outside when it's snowing in the middle of winter!  

  • See the city from the Brooklyn Bridge Park
    See the city from the Brooklyn Bridge Park

    The Brooklyn Bridge Park covers 85 acres and is located right next to the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge. From the park, you can get some of the best views of the New York City skyline.   The park is filled with lots of fun activities. You can rent a kayak to go out on the water, participate in outdoor sports, go bird-watching, see fun art, grab a bite to eat, or even hop on Jane's Carousel. No matter your age, you'll have fun at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

    You Should Know

      There isn't a lot of parking near this park. The easiest way to get here is by renting a bike or taking public transportation.  

  • Witness a performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music

    The Brooklyn Academy of Music is the best performing arts center in Brooklyn. It's known for having very out-of-the-box performances, which is why you should try to see a performance here. The building first opened in 1861 at another location and then moved to this spot in 1908.   Throughout the year, there are many different performances. There's everything from comedians to dances to film festivals. The Brooklyn Academy of Music even hosts lots of events just for children.

    You Should Know

      Purchase tickets ahead of time to ensure that you get to see a performance here.  

  • Grab a bite to eat at Juliana’s
    Grab a bite to eat at Juliana’s

    Juliana's is a popular pizza restaurant in Brooklyn that absolutely shouldn't be missed. They cook their pizzas in a coal-fired oven. The pizza joint is run by Patsy Grimaldi, who is said to be one of the best pizza makers.   They serve a wide variety of pizza flavors at this restaurant. Some of the most popular flavors are white pizza, marinara pizza, and Margherita pizza. The pizzas here are a bit pricier than your average pizza, but you genuinely have to try the pizza here at least once during your trip to Brooklyn while waiting for your cruise to set sail.

    You Should Know

      The line here can get quite long! Try to visit in the mid-afternoon to avoid the busyness.  

  • Relax in Prospect Park
    Relax in Prospect Park

    Prospect Park is located right near Brooklyn's botanic garden! This is one of New York City's many urban parked and is also one of the most-loved. The park covers 586 acres and is the perfect escape from the urban life of Brooklyn.   There are many things to do inside the park. Some of the best activities include biking, working out, bird-watching, and just walking on the many trails! Because the park is so big, you can find a little area to yourself no matter the time of day.

    You Should Know

      There are park tours if you'd like to learn more about the history of Prospect Park.  

  • Learn history at the Brooklyn Historical Society
    Learn history at the Brooklyn Historical Society

    The Brooklyn Historical Society is a museum that first opened back in 1863. Inside, there are many exhibits and even a library, including information about the history of Brooklyn. It spans the past 400 years up until the modern-day!   Many of the exhibits inside the Brooklyn Historical Society are rotating, so they aren't always staying the same. Some of the most popular exhibits of the past include A Queer Look at Brooklyn and Waterfront.

    You Should Know

      There is a suggested ticket price. This isn't enforced; instead, you pay whatever you think your visit is worth. Keep in mind that the money goes right back into exhibiting Brooklyn's history.  

  • Take a photo at the Brooklyn Bridge
    Take a photo at the Brooklyn Bridge

    The Brooklyn Bridge is truly one of the top places to visit in all of New York City. This 5,989-foot bridge is a combination of a cable and suspension bridge. It opened in 1883 and connects Brooklyn to New York City. It crosses right over the East River!   The bridge is one of the top spots to take a photo in this area. If you look one way, you can see the entire New York City skyline, and if you look the other way, you can see Brooklyn's skyline. Visit at night for a fantastic photo!

    You Should Know

      Keep in mind that this bridge is actually in use by cars. There is a unique walkway just for pedestrians and bike riders.  

  • See NYC from above at the Empire State Building
    See NYC from above at the Empire State Building

    Though it's not technically in Brooklyn, you have to go across the bridge to check out the Empire State Building. This is one of the most iconic bridges in all of the United States. It's a skyscraper that stands at 1,454 feet and has 102 floors.   The building is art-deco and is truly a marvel. There's an observation deck at the top that allows visitors to see all of the surrounding city from above. You honestly won't want to miss it during your visit!

    You Should Know

      There are two different observation decks, one on the 102nd floor and one on the 86th floor. Each one has a different price, and you will want to book ahead of time.  

New York (Brooklyn) Cruises When To Visit

Quick Facts

Brooklyn is a great place to visit every time of year because it experiences all four seasons. Therefore, you'll have to think about what season you want to see it in when planning your trip! For instance, the fall and winter seasons are two of the most beautiful times in the city, even though they aren't the busiest.

  • Spring and Fall - September to November and March to May - Shoulder Season

    The spring and fall seasons are beautiful in Brooklyn. You can see the city start to wake up from the cold winter months as the flowers begin to bloom during the spring. Meanwhile, the fall months have some of the most beautiful fall foliage. The weather in the spring averages about 58°F while the fall is around 64°F.

  • Summer - June to August - High Season

    The summer months in Brooklyn can get a bit warmer. This is the most popular time to visit the city because of its warm weather. Keep in mind that accommodation prices usually are a lot higher during this time—the temperature averages around 79°F.

  • Winter - December to February - Low Season

    The least amount of people visit Brooklyn during the winter because it's a bit cooler. During this time, the temperature is around 32°F. It also snows quite a bit in the winter. Prices are lower in the winter because there aren't a whole lot of visitors. However, it can get a bit busy during the holiday season because there are many fun festivities held right in New York City.
