This route leads from Fort Greene Park through the historic neighborhood of Fort Greene, known for being more diverse than most New York communities. One of Fort Greene’s most celebrated cultural icons, the author Richard Wright, was an early harbinger of this trend. Following in his footsteps, you’ll cycle past elegant brownstones into the historic parts of the neighboring communities of Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, and Bedford- Stuyvesant before returning to Fort Greene Park, where Wright’s bench at the park’s summit forms an ideal spot for a post- ride picnic.
