Traffic Infromation

If you're driving into Brooklyn from Manhattan in your rental car, you can take the scenic route over Brooklyn Bridge, or the more direct route via the Brooklyn-Battery tunnel (but note that you have to pay a toll upon entry). From there, an extensive expressway system allows for relatively straightforward navigation. Should you want to skirt the urban sprawl, the Belt Parkway hugs the Long Island coast, leading down past family-friendly Coney Island all the way to John F. Kennedy Airport. The Interstate 478 heads south towards the greenery of Prospect Park, while turning east onto the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (the local section of the I-278) takes you through the glitz of Downtown towards Williamsburg. Another important road is Atlantic Avenue, which runs east to west from Brooklyn Heights to Queens, although nervous drivers might want to avoid it as it's popular with truckers thundering along with heavy loads.

Sixt Tip

Occupying the western end of Long Island, Brooklyn has over 2.5 million inhabitants. It's divided into numerous districts, often with a vibrant ethnic flavour, inspiring a fierce loyalty among those who live there - Hispanic and Orthodox Jewish in the Williamsburg, Italian in Cobble Hill, Irish and Norwegian in Bay Ridge, Puerto Rican in Sunset Park, Chinese in Sheepshead Bay. Downtown and Brooklyn Heights are the main tourist hotspots, with restaurants, high-end shopping and views across the East River to the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Local attractions include the Brooklyn Bridge, a marvel of nineteenth century engineering some 1,595 feet from end to end, and the New York Transit Museum, where you can learn all about the city's subway system. As well as serving up lots of delightful green spaces, Prospect Park is home to an impressive art museum, plus streets of brownstone houses which help to give this part of Brooklyn its distinctive look. And last but not least there's Coney Island and Brighton Beach, where New Yorkers traditionally go for a fun day out for the family.

One of the USA's most iconic roller coasters, the Coney Island Cyclone has been in almost continuous operation since it was first opened in 1927. Visitors can reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour on the 2,640 foot-long twister track, experiencing forces of nearly 4 G's. If you're in the mood for more vintage Americana, the nearby Wonder Wheel dating from 1920 is also well worth a visit.

Covering 526 acres, Prospect Park was created by the same team of designers responsible for Manhattan's Central Park, and Brooklynites will argue it's the better of the two. Attractions include a lake, bandstand and sporting facilities, and its main entrance, Grand Army Plaza, is one of the area's architectural highlights. It's also home to a popular zoo where you can see meerkats, mongooses, porcupines, red pandas and other eye-catching critters.
