This route leads through Brooklyn Bridge Park to the waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook, surrounded by water on three sides. Bustling with longshoremen and dockworkers from the 1850s to 1950s, the neighborhood today maintains a relaxed, maritime vibe. This leisurely ride affords waterfront views, leads along cobblestone roads, brushes past homes and businesses with seaside decor, and abuts Civil War–era warehouses- turned- artist- galleries. It then offers ample opportunity to enjoy the sculpted piers and parks of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
