Greenwood Cemetery

Hi All - planning a trip to Greenwood Cemetery. I will be coming from Connecticut. Wondering if there is any other interesting sites, shops, restaurants, or areas we should visit. Thank you!

Greenwood Cemetary is sort of by itself, Its not really near anything else.

Park Slope , Prospect Park , The Brooklyn Museum, and the Brooklyn Public libarary are interesting not far away, but you very much need to drive there

If you opt to go south, Sunset Park is there where it is mostly a Hispanic neighborhood and further south is the Brooklyn Chinatown.

You do not need to drive anywhere in New York City. From the west side of the Cemetery at 25 St and 5th Avenue (Brooklyn) the B63 bus goes up to Carroll Gardens for a number of extremely nice restaurants. Also the R train stops at 25th St station on 4th Avenue (one avenue away).

If you are at the 39th St side, there is not that much (but in New York, not that much still means bakeries, diners, luncheonettes, pizza places, Chinese restaurants and other kinds of okay restaurants).

The McDonald Avenue/Fort Hamilton Pkway part is near but not quite at Park Slope. You can take the F or G train one stop to 7th Avenue for Park Slope or the 67 or 69 bus that runs on McDonald Avenue.

Here is a Brooklyn bus map (that also show the subway stations):

"You do not need to drive anywhere in New York City" is not a true statement

I personally live over a mile from the nearest subway station and its abit mopre difficult to shop especially food shopping without a car. Also its a bit difficult to get to places that arent directly on the bus routes near my house. In manhattan for sure you dont need a car, but Brooklyn Queens and Staten Island this is not always the case. The bus routes and Subways in the outer Boroughs are not nessarily meant to go cross borough.

Yes, you are right. I was picturing the area around Greenwood Cemetery and Downtown Brooklyn.
