I see these buses rolling around Brooklyn daily. The customer service was exceptional and it was certainly worth the money. Thank you!
The bus company out of Brooklyn is a little on the more expensive side but justified from the service.
Mark and the rest of the team was superb in assisting us with our bus reservation
Brooklyn, New York (BK) is one of the storied boroughs of New York City. With a population of over 2.5 million people, it's the most populous county in the state of New York. The diverse city is home to people from all walks of life, with a dizzying array of restaurants, shopping options, historical sights, and much more.
Nature in the City
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden features over 10,000 types of plants and hosts nearly a million visitors each year. Within the garden, you can take a look at the various collections. The Japanese Hill-and-Pond models the beautiful gardens seen within Japan. It features hills, a pond, waterfall, island, and key rocks. Cherry trees, a beloved sight to see during cherry blossom season from April to May, are planted in the garden as a part of the collection. The Prospect Park Zoo is part of the larger network of Wildlife Conservation Society zoos in New York City (which also include attractions in Central Park, Queens, and the Bronx). The zoo is home to more than 630 animals. The Prospect Park Zoo is dedicated towards the protection of endangered animals and offering education for the public through programs and volunteer opportunities for children and adults alike. Some of the popular animals include tamarins, emerald tree boas, dwarf mongooses, red pandas, river otters, porcupines, and a troop of hamadryas baboons. These iconic mammals are native to Eastern Africa and Southwest Arabia. Their multilevel societies and groups are well-organized with distinct leadership structures.
The Brooklyn Bridge
One of the city's finest sights, which doubles as an iconic landmark for beautiful photographs, is the BK Bridge. Since 1883, the hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge is recognized as a National Historic Landmark and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. The bridge is made up of limestone, Rosendale cement, and granite. It has stood strong over the decades and continues to carry thousands of vehicles and pedestrian commuters day after day. John Augustus Roebling, the creator of the bridges, was originally a resident of Germany who made his way to Pennsylvania as a young adult. After years of experience working on suspension bridges, Roebling constructed a plan for for the world's first steel suspension bridge. At a remarkable 1,600 feet length, the bridge was finally constructed after 14 years of hard work and a budget that would be equivalent to over $300 million dollars in the present.
Like the neighboring boroughs of New York City, BK also hosts a bevy of diverse museums. The Brooklyn Museum contains European paintings and ancient Egyptian works. The City Reliquary is a quintessentially New York museum, which features interesting highlights like aged subway tokens, World's Fair mementos, souvenirs from Jackie Robinson, and more. For families, The BK Children's Museum has a bunch of exhibits related to science, history, artistry, and the natural world. The museum even offers free hours on Thursday from 2 PM to 6 PM. One of the newest exhibits, "Our City," offers artwork by New York legends. Children are encouraged to ask questions about their neighborhoods, and consider what makes a healthy, happy, and fun community. The exhibit is open from March 10 to September 4, 2016.
Alongside the beach in South BK, you can visit Coney Island. The amusement park features over 50 different rides and attractions. Luna Park NYC includes rides like Coney Island Cyclone, Thunderbolt, Sling Shot, Zenobio, Wild River, Soarin Eagle, Watermania, and Lynn's Trapeze, among others.
