I’ve been asked by members of the Brooklyn Bird Club to post some information 
about travel to Prospect Park.  

Please do not drive here if you can avoid it, especially on the weekend.  
Parking is difficult, traffic is congested, and it is easy to reach us by 
subway.  The closest subway station is Prospect Park on the B and Q trains 
(only Q runs on the weekend).  Stay towards the front of the train if you’re 
coming from Manhattan, turn right as you exit the station on Lincoln Rd. and 
you will see the park across Ocean Avenue.  The Midwood, current location of 
the warbler, is just to the right (north) once you get into the park.  Follow 
the East Drive until you meet Center Drive, the walk left (west).  

You can also take the F, G or 2 train, and walk through the park.  There are 
many maps around the park, along with PEPs and other park workers who can 
direct you.

If you’re coming this afternoon keep in mind that Ocean Avenue becomes two 
lanes of traffic southbound at 4PM, so no parking on that side.  There are 
always many events in the park on the weekend, especially Smorgasburg on 
Sunday, which brings lots of crowds and traffic.

Thank you.  Good luck getting the bird.  Last one was 1950.
