You would have to take the subway closer to the bridge.

2, 3 to Clark

C to High Street

or according to the map its a 32 minute (1.6 mile) walk once you get out at Atlantic Terminal.

Enjoy.

The 2 or 3 to Clark Street will be your best bet. You can get these trains directly within the Atlantic Terminal station (Atlantic/Pacific on the subway.) You'd need to walk a couple of blocks to get to the C.

Thank you for your help. As an x New yorker I have always wanted to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and it has been hard to find the way there from LI.

Have a good day!!!

Just remember to take an LIRR train going to Atlantic Terminal (Flatbush Avenue) in Brooklyn, and not to Penn Station. You may have to change at Jamaica.

You probably dont have to change at Jamiaca on a train from Garden City (Hempstead Branch) Most of those drains go to Brooklyn
