Downtown Brooklyn, located in the Northwest of the borough, is one of the largest business districts in New York City. While its skyscrapers – which give the neighborhood a characteristic NYC vibe – are mostly home to businesses and residences, you will discover some interesting tourist attractions among them. Rental cars in Downtown Brooklyn make it easy to see the local attraction, but become especially useful when you want to see the sights that the rest of New York has to offer.
Driving Through Downtown Brooklyn
One of the most interesting sights in Downtown Brooklyn is the New York Transit Museum. See its exhibits before you pick up New York City rental cars and you'll gain an appreciation for the storied streets, tunnels, and bridges that make up this remarkable city's transportation network. Know that another of the area's attractions, Fulton Mall and its 230-plus stores, is a pedestrian-only street, so don't make the mistake of trying to drive there. With Downtown Brooklyn rental cars you'll have close access to two of New York City's most useful transportation connections – the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Both are toll-free, and link Brooklyn with Manhattan, the home of many of the city's most-famous tourist attractions. In Lower Manhattan, on the other side of the East River, you'll see such iconic landmarks as Wall Street, One World Trade Center, and the oldest Chinatown in New York City. Other sights in the vicinity include the historic South Seaport area. A free attraction and great photo opportunity that won't bust your budget during cheap vacations in New York, visit to see restored sailing ships docked there. See in the distance the Brooklyn Bridge, one possible route back to your base in Downtown Brooklyn. It's a National Historic Landmark and one of the oldest bridges in the United States.
