Coney Island to the Brooklyn Bridge (bus,train)?

by Brahmama

We are coming in May and will stay in NYC. We want to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and the Heights area and also want to spend some time at Coney Island. We're Seniors (full-fledged) and have to have a Nathan's hot dog, go the the Coney Island Museum and (if it's open the last week in May) ride the Carousel (I know it has a fancier spelling at Coney Island!). We would perfer to go to Coney 1st and walk back on the bridge a little before dark.

Can you help with transportation ideas?

RE: Coney Island to the Brooklyn Bridge (bus,train)?

by Stef619

There are 4 trains that take you from Manhattan (where I assume you're staying) to Coney Island. They are the N,D,Q and f. Coney Island is the last stop for all these trains and drop you off right across the street from the boardwalk and Nathans! The train is the "quickest" way to get from Manhattan to C.I.

To get from C.I. to the Brooklyn Bridge you can take the F train from C.I. to the York Street stop (the last stop in Brooklyn and the cross street is Jay Street) from there I would guess that it is a 10 minute walk to the base of the bridge.

Here is the MTA bus map of Brooklyn so you can get an idea of where the F train stop is in relation to the Bridge. http://www.mta.info/nyct/maps/busbkln.pdf

Im not an expert on Brooklyn, but have walked across the bridge and it's just beautiful. Coney Island is fun too, although they are scheduled to start a lot of construction there within the year.

Hope this helped!

Travel Tips for Brooklyn

Grand Army Plaza

by Gypsystravels

The area around the Arch forms the busiest and largest traffic area in Brooklyn converging 5 major streets found here in Brooklyn, which are Flatbush Avenue, Vanderbuilt Avenue, Eastern Parkway, Prospect Park West and Union Street.

You can also find the free tourist trolley which shuttles you to places like the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Boathouse, Wollman Rink (yes, there is one here too) and the Brooklyn Musuem. It operates from noon til 6 from the plaza.

There is a Green Market, or Farmer’s Market as referred to by the residents which is held every Saturday from 8 am to 4 pm.

Come see SI beat Brooklyn

Although I will not go to Shea I have no problem with the Mets minor league teams. You should come out and see a game here. Quite the good time. Even better if you can see the Staten Island Yankees beat the Cyclones

The Verrazano Bridge

by TempNomad

After having a nice brunch in Bay Ridge, make your way down to the water. You can't walk over the bridge, but the view is wonderful from the long walkway by the water. It can be difficult to get there without a car, but buses do come close. Otherwise, take the R train to Bay Ridge and just keep walking west. There are several crosswalks over the Belt Parkway.

Driving, just take the Belt down past 62nd Street and park in any of the lots on the right hand side. You'll see kite flyers and sun lovers and just plain lovers enjoying the strip of walkway and grass that frame the water.

Convivium

by cjg1 about Convivium

I made it to this place on a rather bad day. I had just picked up a friend from the airport as he was coming home for a funeral. Upon delivering him to his sisters house this is where we all went.

Such a wonderful place. Outdoor patio in the back with only a small indoor seating area.

We sat out back and proceded to have a great meal. I really like these places where you're eating out in a garden. Kind of reminds me of Kaisergarten in Karlsruhe. I shared with my friend the huge steak. For those who were disappointed in my recent smaller portions of food trust me this wasnt one of them.

All the good restaurants are on 5th Avenue

by dogears about 6 or 7 places and new ones opening up

A DI LA is truely authentic italian, VAUX has "precious food" that hardly fills the plate - but deliciuos, good wine. MIKE & TONY'S steak house, and the long standing CUCHINA restaurant both have a wonderful interior and good portions. More restaurants to choose from all within 6 blocks of CARROLL STREET. Nearby 200 5TH AVENUE restaurant has comfort food, champagne brunch and sports on eight TV's. MIKE & TONY's - good, rich food.
Great serving staff, creative chef without being too much.
