Brooklyn Bridge Park

In conjunction with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, the Amateur Astronomers Association hosts “Journey to the Stars” observing sessions on Thursday evenings from dusk until 10pm.

Along with our observing session, the Conservancy will present free Movies With A View, sponsored by the SyFy Channel. The observing area for this event is near the entrance to the movie viewing lawn at the top of the hill on Pier 1 of the Brooklyn waterfront.
