One Day Only! Free Shuttle to Brooklyn Fun Spots
I didn't get the email until after the 2nd Saturday of November, but the December 13th shuttle offered by Heart of Brooklyn is still coming! The last stop on the shuttle route is actually in Sunset Park, and it will take you to the front entrance of the following places: Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Children's Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library (GAP), Prospect Park, and the Prospect Park Zoo. I'm sure it's a much more pleasant ride than taking the R and switching at Pacific, or even taking a couple of buses. Check out the schedule for December 13th. Depending on how crowded it gets, it might be worth venturing into Bay Ridge to wait at the 4th and Bay Ridge Avenue shuttle stop. What follows comes from the website/email:
Saturday Scene is free regular transportation to central Brooklyn from select neighborhoods in Brooklyn, running continuous loops from 10am-6pm. Serving Bay Ridge (second Saturdays), Red Hook (third Saturdays), and Williamsburg (fourth Saturdays), the shuttle makes its way to the main entrances of the cultural institutions in the Heart of Brooklyn.
