Brooklyn Bridge Park
Brooklyn Bridge Park runs along the waterfront under and between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. The park includes Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, which runs from the Brooklyn Bridge northeast in front of the Empire Stores building and falls under the jurisdiction of the state. The park sits on what was a team track yard between Empire Stores and the river, where cargo could be unloaded from freight rail cars onto wagons. Curiously (and, perhaps, for some legal liability reason), although the water is directly accessible in other parts of the park, the Empire-Fulton is walled off by rocks and rangers keep patrons from walking on the beach.
