Brooklyn began with a ferry. Join Transit Museum curators for a gallery talk to trace the roots of Downtown Brooklyn all the way back to 1642, when the first commercial ferry slip between Long Island and New Amsterdam opened at the end of Old Fulton Street. Using archival photographs and objects from the Museum’s extensive collections, our newest exhibit, From Fulton Ferry: Building Downtown Brooklyn, celebrates the centuries of investment and innovation in transportation that made the evolution of Downtown Brooklyn possible, as well as transportation’s key role in the commercial and residential development of Brooklyn and the Greater New York region.
