Or you might just go to DUMBO by crossing the Brooklyn Bridge as suggested  below:
  1. Plan to spend at least an hour in each direction, so there’s time to stop and look.
  2. Bring your street smarts: Go during daylight hours, or any evening when there are lots of other pedestrians.
  3. Wear comfortable shoes, and not high heels. (The planks of wood will catch small heels).
  4. Realize that it’s a 1.3 mile walk, perhaps longer than you (or your children) expected.
  5. Take a moment to get a photograph of the Manhattan skyline.
  6. Stay in the pedestrian lane.
  7. Pay attention to all the other traffic, such as bikes, that have their own lanes.
Once over the Bridge, you will want to see Jane's Carousel  http://janescarousel.com/  for a fabulous look at the city from an historic 1922 vintage carousel. At any rate, September 26th  is the day to travel to the Big Apple. Please call Mary Beth or Bernie in the Library office for the price and more details. 860-673-6791.
