Profile

Formerly BKLYN Yard, as long as the weather permits this outdoor space on the banks of the Gowanus Canal holds the crown for best near-river-front-party in industrial Brooklyn. Set in a sizable lot shaded by water-towered warehouse facades, the locale offers a veritable fresh-air fantasy spot between the stuffy enclosures of neighboring Park Slope and Carroll Gardens; a thin fence separates green grass and gravel from the bridge-dotted, surprisingly odorless(!) canal. The flip-flop oasis is decidedly local, easy-going, and stroller-friendly as nearby foragers and their progeny file in each weekend for a nominal fee to catch attractions ranging from beat-heavy vinyl sets to film screenings, live comedy, and everything else fit for a concrete dance floor and a tented stage.
