This route traverses the East River via its two southernmost bridges and visits the downtown areas of the two boroughs they connect—Manhattan and Brooklyn. You’ll pass Brooklyn’s Fulton Ferry Landing, one of the borough’s most historic spots, where ferries to Manhattan launched in 1642. You’ll then cross the East River via its oldest bridge, cycle down some of Manhattan’s oldest alleés in downtown Manhattan, and return to downtown Brooklyn via the Manhattan Bridge.
