Tank Barges into Fort Tilden and Breezy Point. Part 3.

It is certainly true what they say that memories tend to fade over time. Looking back on my trip, I find it hard to remember all the details. Teaches me a lesson, though, to post right after the event. How to find time for all that, I wonder.
Picking up from where I lest the story hanging. Left that god forsaken, fake surf club, went around the block and started heading for the beach.

Few block pass and I saw it – a small path, heading towards the ocean. It looked like a stairs to the heaven, so do speak. According to the signs dogs don’t go to the heaven after all.

Tank Barges into Fort Tilden and Breezy Point. Part 2.

Been busy for a few days with all the holiday craze it was quite hard to find some time to sit down and wrap this trip.Still finishing up that thanksgiving turkey in the fridge.

Back to the trip…

Just pass the Floyd Bennet’s field entrance there’s a toll plaza. Yes, almost all bridges, major highways and tunnels in New York are toll. Like our taxes and car registration fees and road fines aren’t enough to cover a maintenance of a couple of bridges and highways. Bloated, money-hungry fiends they are. But, what you can do? Cars pay $2.78 upon entry, bicycles – nothing. A good point, indeed.

Tank Barges into Fort Tilden and Breezy Point. Part 1.

So it happened, that I had a couple of unaccounted sick and personal days at work. For non-US readers, a bit of clarification is in order. Here in US working at a company you are granted “X” amount of sick and personal time to use throughout the year, in the end it either gets paid-off or you loose it. My company pays, but I thought to be a bit lazy and use it all together with weekend and make out of it a mini-vacation.

Today is, probably one of the last nice days that New York shall see ’till spring, and I decided to grab a cycling trip to the south-east of Brooklyn to a place called Breezy Point which is in Far Rockaway so we call it, cross Jamaica Bay.

My path lies along Belt Parkway and Flatbush avenue in Brooklyn with a little detour to Floyd Bennet Field, crossing Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge or Rockaway Bridge for short. Into Fort Tilden and then into Breezy Point – a “gated” community, up to the waterfront  on southern beach.

Trip starts at the very end of Emmons avenue, which is in Sheepshead Bay district of Brooklyn.

Towards Verrazano Bridge Tank shall go.

Besides being a full time anime fan I am an avid cyclist as well, I can’t use my bicycle to commute to and from work, I’d really like to but I can’t. So I just enjoy taking a free ride in Brooklyn and on Manhattan.
For quite some time I was thinking of doing a photo report of a cycling route that I favor most.
For the whole week weather was absolutely marvelous just right for a late autumn ride along New York Bay. I ride on Brooklyn side on a promenade along the shore line. Usually it’s a out-and-back trip towards 69th street pier. But today I decided to make a bit of a loop around Bensonhurst, Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and New Utrecht districts of Brooklyn.

Trip begins next to a local shopping plaza.
