Default Grillin on the Bay - March 25 - Brooklyn, NY - Driving Directions

From NJ
Take 440 to Staten Island. (I hear that the Goethal’s Bridge will be closed early in the morning so take either the BayoneBridge or Outerbridge Crossing to the West Shore Expressway to the Staten Island Expressway)
On Staten Island, take the Staten Island Expressway East to the VerazanoBridge
Take the VerazanoBridge to Brooklyn.

For commercial traffic or cars with trailers….
At the end of the Bridge, go straight to the Gowanus Expressway – I don’t know if it’s labeled as such, but the only other option is to go on the Belt Parkway, which you don’t want.
Take the Gowanus Expressway to the 86th Street Exit.
At the light coming off the expressway, make a right onto 86th Street going east.
You will be on 86th Street for about 8 miles.
(You will be driving through Bay Ridge, DykerHeights, BathBeach and Bensonhurst – stop at any of the Italian bakeries you pass – you’ll be glad you did!)
86th Street will end at McDonald Avenue
Bear a slight left on to Avenue X. (You are basically going straight)
Take 86th Street to Coney Island Ave. (Paradise Florist on corner)
Make a right onto Coney Island Ave South.
Take Coney Island Ave to Ave Z.
Make a left onto Ave Z East.
The contest will be at the corner of East 18th Street and Avenue Z.

For non-commercial vehicles.
From the bridge, take the exit to the Belt Parkway East.
Take the Belt Parkway East to the Ocean Parkway Exit.
From the service road of the Belt, at the 1st light, make a left onto Ocean Parkway North.
Take Ocean Parkway North to Ave Z.
Make a right onto Ave Z east.
The contest will be on the corner of East 18th Street and Avenue Z.

From Long Island

(Check the maps on this one, I don’t think it’s the best route)
Take the Long Island Expressway West
Exit, BrooklynQueens Expressway West (South)
Exit at Tillary Street West (Flatbush Avenue)

Take Ditmas to Ocean AVENUE.

Thanks for reminding me Bob. I also wish all the teams competing good luck and good Qing. The real lucky ones will be the judges tommorrow because they will get to eat the best grilled food in the North East.

Just stay in the RIGHT two lanes as you go over the bridge, by midspan... the LEFT lane, is a "left exit only" lane, that takes you to the Belt Prkwy......

Don't worry, I'll open all the secret portal's between Brooklyn and the rest of the world tomorrow morning. You'll have 24 hours before they close.

Just make sure you lock the doors and close the windows as you cross the border. Hey - it is the big bad city ya know.
