Places to See


Whether you’re coming or going, laying out on the lush lawns, visiting Jane’s Carousel, or being a shutterbug, this go-to location, nestled between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, is not to be missed.


The grass at the Empire Fulton Ferry Lawn was recently replaced following the redesign and construction of the area, part of the larger Emily Warren Roebling Plaza project.

The lawn will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays to allow the young grass to properly root and grow.

About Empire Fulton Ferry

Relax at Empire Fulton Ferry, a green oasis set against a scenic cityscape that just begs to be photographed. Located between the historic Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, Empire Fulton Ferry features the beautifully restored Jane’s Carousel, a gift of Jane and David Walentas. From its graceful lawns and boardwalk, Empire Fulton Ferry offers beautiful views of the harbor and Lower Manhattan skyline.

Pack a picnic to enjoy at one the many picnic tables in the Picnic Grove. Or stop into Empire Stores where you can enjoy the rich history of the Civil War-era building that has been transformed into a 21st-century mall with shops, offices, and the famous Time Out Market where you can find any type of delicious meal!

Next door at the Tobacco Warehouse, now home to St. Ann’s Warehouse, you can enjoy the arts and take in a show.
