Brooklyn Bridge Park – 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 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 excellent views of the harbor and Lower Manhattan skyline. Bordering the park are Empire Stores and the Tobacco Warehouse, two Civil War-era buildings which played an integral part in the great shipping activities that once dominated this portion of the Brooklyn waterfront.
