Literary Lives of Brooklyn Professional Review and Guide

"This route runs through iconic Brooklyn historic districts, framed by tree- lined roads and stately brownstones, making it a pleasing ride even if you don’t marvel at the (past) presence of the writerly crowd. In Brooklyn Heights, the route passes the former brownstone homes of many a mid- twentieth- century writer.

The trail is paved throughout except for approximately 0.3 mile on Front and York Streets, which are cobbled. There’s one steep descent from Columbia Heights to Fulton Ferry Landing and a subtle ascent back to Brooklyn Heights. Then there’s one gentle, steady ascent through Park Slope toward Prospect Park. From there it’s downhill back to Brooklyn Heights. Otherwise the route is flat. The route runs mainly along residential streets with light traffic and roads with bike lanes. Streets are mostly narrow, so cars you encounter should be traveling slowly. Old Fulton Street has moderate traffic, but a bike lane along the border gives cyclists ample space. The trek into Carroll Gardens and Park Slope leads mainly along relatively narrow roads. Stay alert of parked cars to avoid getting doored."
