Once cut off by derelict spaces, New York City has been bringing back access to the waterfront with green spaces like esplanades and parks over the last decade. This summer is no exception. Brooklyn Bridge Park, for example, which opened in 2010 and is Brooklyn’s most significant new park in more than 100 years, opened Pier 3 this month, the last of five piers along the 1.3-mile waterfront area to be converted to parkland. Another example is the Greenpoint, a block-size complex that will have a park on the East River open to the public.

This summer is also Williamsburg’s turn, with Domino Park, which opened in June on the site of the former Domino Sugar Refinery, part of a mega development that will rehab the factory building. The 6-acre park features materials salvaged from the factory and has a view of Manhattan and as well as a playground, waterfront esplanade, dog run, and taco shack.

The new park adds another element of desirability to a happening neighborhood stocked with restaurants, bars, shopping, and entertainment. If all of that appeals to you, here are five two bedrooms under $1,250,000 (including one for less than half that price that’s income restricted, so be sure to check the listing for details before you head over) that are having open houses this weekend.
