Why Do I Need A Car In Brooklyn?
Although Brooklyn boasts a well-developed public transportation network, the service does not cover all neighborhoods of the borough. Depending on where exactly in Brooklyn you are planning to relocate to, you might want to hold on to your four-wheeled companion. Besides, Brooklyn is a very car-friendly part of New York. Street parking is available almost everywhere, and getting around borough in your own vehicle is much easier in general. Brooklyn is home to several expressways:
– The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, which connects these two boroughs,
– The Gowanus Expressway, which is, in fact, a part of the previous one,
– The Prospect Expressway, also known as New York State Route 27,
– The Belt Parkway, and
– The Jacky Robinson Parkway, formerly known as the Interborough Parkway.
