Brooklyn Bridge & DUMBO

These two bridges are a must visit in New york. Finally walked into this famous bridge that connects Manhattan to Brooklyn.

Dumbo is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.

There are three ways to get into Brooklyn and DUMBO

To start in Manhattan: Take the 4, 5, 6  trains to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Stop or the J or Z trains to Chambers St. Stop.  These are the two closest subway stations.    The bridge will be right across the street from the subway station. However, you could also take the 2 or 3 train to Park Place, the N or R train to City Hall, or the A or C train to Fulton Street

– A/C train to High Street, exit onto Cadman Plaza West. Walk left, toward the overhead highway; the street changes name to Old Fulton Street. Walk down the hill and bear left as you approach the East River. Continue on Fulton to DUMBO’s Front Street to get a sense of the neighborhood.

– 2/3 train to Clark Street, take the Henry Street exit. Walk left on Henry Street. Go left on Cadman Plaza West/Old Fulton Street and walk downhill to the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park, located at the bottom of the hill, at the waterfront.

– F train to York Street, walk one block down Jay Street toward Manhattan, turning left at Front Street. Take Front Street until Old Fulton Street, turn right. The Turn left on Front Street. Proceed straight until Old Fulton Street. Turn right. The entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park is located at the bottom of the hill, at the waterfront.
