    About Empire Fulton Ferry

    Relax at Empire Fulton Ferry, a green oasis set against a scenic cityscape that just begs to be photographed. Located between the historic Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, Empire Fulton Ferry features the beautifully restored Jane’s Carousel, a gift of Jane and David Walentas. From its graceful lawns and boardwalk, Empire Fulton Ferry offers beautiful views of the harbor and Lower Manhattan skyline.

    Bordering the park area are Empire Stores and Tobacco Warehouse, the new home of St. Ann’s Warehouse. These two Civil War-era buildings played an integral part in the great shipping activities that once dominated this portion of the Brooklyn waterfront. Empire Stores will also host BHS DUMBO, the second location of the Brooklyn Historical Society.

    The Tobacco Warehouse’s historic brick walls also house the Max Family Garden. This charming, triangular garden with meandering paths, welcoming seating areas, and neatly framed views invites visitors to sit and catch their breath in its peaceful interior.
