FULTON FERRY LANDING

ABOUT FULTON FERRY LANDING

The refurbished pier was re-opened in 1997, offering visitors spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the New York Harbor and the Lower Manhattan skyline.

A favorite of locals and tourists for its picturesque setting, Fulton Ferry Landing features custom-designed marine railings that interweave Walt Whitman’s famous “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” poem with imagery evocative of the Brooklyn Bridge. Bronze relief drawings of local historic scenes are embedded in the pier deck.

Come here to grab a snack from nearby Luke’s Lobster or a fruit-infused lemonade from Lizzmonade and stand in awe of the magnificent Brooklyn Bridge.
