Brooklyn Soccer

Regular readers know that my two nephews are big soccer players. The oldest, Mike, has graduated college but wants to keep playing. He has friends in Brooklyn, so they invited him to play in a Monday night league. You have to love soccer to drive almost two hours each way for a game.

But the setting is fantastic. As part of the continued expansion of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 5 has been built out with three nice turf soccer fields. On a nice summer night, it’s a great place to watch a soccer game.

The fields look like this, with lower Manhattan in the background. Mike was playing on the field farthest to the back:

And the obligatory view of Manhattan from the end of the pier:

Really a great spot and a nice night to watch soccer with family.
