HOW TO GET THERE:

Subway – Recommended Directions:
F train to York Street. Emerge from station and turn left. You are now on Jay Street. Walk up Jay Street, turn left on Sands, walk down the hill and turn right on Navy Street. The park is a 1 block from there on the left. Use the BQE as a guide.

From the Manhattan Bridge:
Stay in the right lane on the bridge and exit toward the BQE. Stay right as you exit. Turn right on Sands and turn right on Navy. The park is a block from there.

From the Brooklyn Bridge:
Stay in the right lane on the bridge and exit toward the BQE. Stay right as you exit. Turn right on Prospect Street. When you get under the Manhattan Bridge, turn right on Jay. Turn left on Sands and turn right on Navy. The park is a block from there.

From 3rd Ave., Brooklyn:
Cross Atlantic, then cross Flatbush. The Brooklyn Academy of Music is on your right. Take first left on Ashland Place. Follow Ashland, which turns into Navy Street, under the BQE. When you emerge from under the BQE you will see the field on the right. Field 2 is the closer to Navy Street.

On Foot
(I am told that it can be done) across the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridges from Manhattan, or up Tillary Street from Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn.
