Williamsburg is one of the most beautiful areas of Brooklyn, and part of the intrigue lies in the breathtaking waterfront. The Williamsburg luxury rentals at 420 Kent are situated to give you phenomenal 360-degree views of the East River. There are also tons of attractions right on the water to guarantee you the perfect vantage point at all times. Here are some of our favorites.
Despite being less than a year old, Domino Park has already made itself a staple for families and visitors in Williamsburg. This 5-acre park has three entrances on Kent Avenue and sits on the former location of the Domino Sugar Refinery. The factory was closed in 2004, but many artifacts still remain, such as syrup tanks and cranes. These elements now serve not only as stunning figures, but also as playground equipment, combining history and entertainment. Domino Park is a unique and integral part of Williamsburg, and you can take full advantage of the waterfront views by strolling down the elevated walkway.
On Saturdays, make your way to East River State Park and experience Smorgasburg, America’s largest open-air food market. Since 2011, Smorgasburg has hosted more than 100 local vendors and served Brooklyn’s finest food to 20,000-30,000 people each week. This event is free to attend and is open every weekend, rain or shine. Many vendors also offer special menus for dietary restrictions, so everyone can enjoy! You can easily visit the park from 420 Kent’s Williamsburg rentals, making this location the perfect place to spend the afternoon.
OddFellows Ice Cream Co.
Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Brooklyn Bridge while savoring some of the best ice cream in New York. OddFellows pasteurizes their own ice cream base on-site, allowing for a creamier product in multiple unique and delicious flavors. Since their ice cream is always fresh, batches are small, meaning there will be new samplings to try every time you go, sometimes even changing throughout the day! There’s truly no better combination than a scrumptious desert and a view to die for.
Williamsburg’s waterfront offers something for everyone, and the Williamsburg luxury rentals offered by 420 Kent put you right near all of the action.
