BY BUS:

The B25 bus stops at Fulton Ferry Landing. This bus runs from Bedford-Stuyvesant to Fort Greene to Downtown Brooklyn to Fulton Ferry, and back. Visitors to DUMBO who are unable to walk more than a few blocks might save a bit of walking by taking the bus to and from a stop within blocks of the 2 or 3 subway stop at Clark Street and back. This bus operates only in Brooklyn. See the B25 bus schedule.
 
BY CAR:

One can easily drive to DUMBO from Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and Long Island. DUMBO is located near the Gowanus Expressway, and of course, near to the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. For detailed directions via your navigation type in 60 Water Street or 37 Front Street, Brooklyn, NY. This will take you to the parking lot right behind our Street Style stage. A short walk around the corner will out you right into the action.

PARKING: Street parking in DUMBO is challenging. We recommend Googling lots in the area. The closest lot to the event is located at 60 Water Street (AKA 37 Front Street). As a note, all guests are responsible for their own parking fees.
WHAT TO BRING:
 
  • Your camera, phone and portable phone charger
  • Cash for the Street Style Shops and Food from the Essence Eats food truck area. Some vendors will take credit cards but we recommend having cash on hand.
  • Sunglasses
  • Water to stay hydrated

WHAT TO WEAR:
 
  • Your best outfit that represents your Street Style. There will be lots of opportunities to be photographed so come camera ready! Last year, you were the best looking crowd we’d ever seen. Let’s make it happen again.
  • We will be live casting for our Fashion Show that day so you may be picked. This could be your moment.


CHILDREN:

We will have activities for children at the Essence Street Style Block Party. All children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in any activities.
