Directions: Where’s that shack?!
Brooklyn Crab is located at 24 Reed St., across from the Fairway Supermarket in the neighborhood of Red Hook in Brooklyn, New York.
IKEA NY Water Taxi: Brooklyn Crab is located just a few blocks from IKEA and easily accessible by the water taxi that departs from the South Street Seaport in Manhattan. You can check the schedule at NY Water Taxi. Once you get off the taxi, walk past the IKEA to Beard Street and go left for 3 blocks until you reach Van Brunt Street. Make a left on Van Brunt Street and then a quick right onto Reed Street.
Car: There is ample street parking nearby.
Bicycle: Brooklyn Crab has bike racks, and there are several other bike racks nearby. For local bicycle paths, check NYCbikemaps.
The great thing about the MTA site and their “trip planner” application is that you can plug in a destination address, say (24 Reed) followed by your own starting point, and it will calculate where and when you need to be to make your Subway and or Bus connections (…) When you get off the train, head away from the Gowanus Canal in a westerly direction towards Court Street. That’s where you’ll find the stop for the B61 buses.
You get a free transfer here, as long as the same MetroCard you boarded the train with is used. You can easily walk the distance to the waterfront, but a free anything in New York City is something you should always accept. (info excerpted from the O’Connell Organization.)
