Best Soccer Fields in New York City

Many of us that live in the NYC know that coming across a great soccer field with good turf, and not occupied, is a GOLD MINE. I've put together a short list of the top fields I have come across my few months living here. I will keep on updating throughout my New York Soccer field journey.

And the nominees are!...

1. Pier 5- Brooklyn Bridge Park

Brooklyn, New York

Probably the most popular and well-known soccer field in the NYC area. There are a lot of pick up games as well as rec leagues. Looking for a trainer? Chances are you can find on there giving a training session to kids. This beautiful park overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge as well as the Manhattan skyline. Moreover, there is a ton of other piers around for other sports! Summer time the fields are packed and the is great spaces for picnics and meetups.

2. Pier 40

New York, New York

Pier 40 hosts large fields both ground level and rooftop. Its full turf and is also well known for pick up and coed leagues in addition to youth soccer teams/clubs. The view is amazing, especially to the World Trade Center. Make sure you wear your turf shoes though (and with some cushion) because the field is very hard.
