Exploring South Brooklyn
Brooklyn's answer to Central Park is Prospect Park, a 587-acre green open space that is home to a beautiful boathouse on the Lullwater. At the northern corner of the park you'll find Brooklyn Museum, which houses 1.5 million artworks including Egyptian masterpieces and world-famous European paintings. Detour to the Sunset Park neighborhood where you'll find fine examples of Renaissance Revival and Romanesque architecture, and some of the best hotels in South Brooklyn. As sun makes its decent, walk up to the highest point in the leafy neighborhood and you'll be rewarded with an incredible silhouette of Manhattan's iconic skyline. Avoid being squished like sardines on the subway by hiring a car to whiz around the city in. Travelocity offer the lowest pieces on car rentals in South Brooklyn.
