This seven-acre park in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood is known by locals as the Waterfront and is made up simply of concrete, grass, a dock, and a stage. But altogether, this spot is more than the sum of its parts. On summer Saturdays, the concrete area is crowded with sellers of vintage goods, and on the weekends, Brooklyn’s most buzzed-about food vendors descend on the concrete area and transform it into the weekly food fair called Smorgasburg. The park is also a venue for many of the biggest acts that pass through New York. And every day, families flock to the green space for views of the Manhattan skyline.
