Mass Transit: From Manhattan, take the No.2 Train (No.5 train only on weekday rush hours on the East Side) on the West Side downtown to Flatbush & Nostrand Avenue (last stop), from there transfer to the Q35 bus south on Flatbush Avenue. Ask the driver to let you off at Floyd Bennett Field. Check the bus map for the many buses that connect to the Q35 line. Take any trains from Manhattan that stop at Atlantic or Pacific Avenue stations in Brooklyn and transfer to the No.2 or No.5 trains to the Flatbush/Nostrand Station and take the Q35 bus. The Q35 bus stops on Flatbush Avenue across from the entrance at the Ryan Visitor Center and again at the entrance road just before the bridge toll plaza.
By Car: From the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn take exit 11-S which brings you onto Flatbush Avenue South. About 1 mile south the Belt Parkway, keep left and turn left at the traffic light just before the Marine Parkway Bridge toll plaza. From central Brooklyn, you may take Flatbush Avenue south all the way to the Field. From the Rockaways take the Marine Parkway Bridge and make the first right at the traffic light after the toll gate.
