We are coming to NYC this Sep and I've read that the Smith-9th St Station in Brooklyn is due to reopen this Spring. As it's the highest subway station in the world, I'd quite like to see it!
So I was thinking this as a plan for one morning:
Take the subway from LIC (we'll be at the Country Inn & Suites) to Smith-9th St
Walk from Smith-9th Street towards the Brooklyn Bridge, via Brooklyn Heights
Check out the BH Promenade and Dumbo, before walking back over the bridge to Manhattan.
Is that do-able in a morning? It looks like around a 2 mile walk from Smith-9th Street to the Brooklyn Bridge, does that sound right?
What is the area like around Smith-9th Street, is there much to see around there...and would anybody be kind enough to tell me the most interesting route to take?
I'm seeing various areas on the map - the Columbia Street Waterfont District and Downtown Brooklyn for example - are these nice places to walk through?
