How do I get to Brooklyn Bridge Park?

How do I get on the Brooklyn Bridge?

Is there parking?

Construction of the park began in January 2009.

The Brooklyn Bridge opened on May 14th, 1883. It was the first bridge to cross the East River, the largest suspension bridge built at the time, and was called the “eighth wonder of the world.”

Empire Stores and the Tobacco warehouse are both Civil War Era buildings

More than 13,000 timber piles support the piers in the Park.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is open every day of the year. All 365 days!

Subway tunnels run under the Piles.

Several park structures have green roofs, which serve to absorb rainwater, provide building insulation, and create new habitats for wildlife and lower urban air temperatures.
