GETTING TO THE START

The route closes to
vehicular traffic at
7:15AM; be sure to
take this into account
when planning your
arrival. We do not
recommend driving
to the Start Area.

Bike

Obviously, we’re quite partial to this
option. From anywhere in Manhattan
or downtown Brooklyn, the best way
to get to the Start Area is by bike. The
Hudson River Greenway and Broadway
both lead directly to Bowling Green. For
detailed directions, we recommend
using Google Maps to plan your route
(be sure to click the bicycle icon).
