II. Crosstown Buses – SoHo, Tribeca, Bowery & Downtown NYC

HOUSTON STREET. There are crosstown buses on Houston. The M21 crosses town on Houston Street beginning in the West Village at Spring Street and Greenwich Street and ending in the East Village / Bowery at Grand Street and the FDR.

DOWNTOWN NYC. There are two other crosstown buses downtown, but not in the same sense as those on Houston Street [and further north in Manhattan] as these two bus lines run diagonally east / west across the southern end of Manhattan.

The M22 line starts near the Hudson River at the south end of North End Avenue, crosses town at Chambers Street to City Hall, circumvents the Brooklyn Bridge by going under it before heading in a north easterly direction along Madison Street (not Ave) and terminating at Grand and Cherry Streets in the Bowery.

The M9 starts further south near the Hudson River at South End Avenue, cuts across town at Warren Street, before heading in a northeasterly direction along Park Row to East Broadway and then due north along Essex Street into the Village along Avenue C.

III. By Car

East Side: FDR Drive – East River Bridges & Tunnel

HOUSTON STREET. There are exits for Houston Street and at Grand Street for the Williamsburg Bridge. To cross the Williamsburg Bridge into Brooklyn you have to go west as far as Clinton and then do U-Turn to access ramp to the Williamsburg Bridge, which crosses the East River into northern Brooklyn.

WILLIAMSBURG BRIDGE. The Williamsburg Bridge is accessible via Delancey Street and the main intersecting north / south streets are Bowery [and Lafayette onto Kenmare which becomes Delancey a few blocks east].

MANHATTAN BRIDGE. Take the South Street / Manhattan Bridge exit. Take the access road [underneath FDR] to the south side of the bridge - go as far west as Clinton and then turn north and then east [essentially a U-Turn] onto Delancey heading east across the bridge.

The Manhattan Bridge is most easily accessible from north via Bowery [3rd & 4th Avenues merge with Bowery a few blocks north of Houston]. Also take Canal Street coming from the west. Chrystie Street is an easy off street coming from Brooklyn.

BROOKLYN BRIDGE. The Brooklyn Bridge is accessible via Park Row from the south and Centre Street from the north by City Hall. That is also where the Manhattan pedestrian crossing of the Brooklyn Bridge begins. Centre Street merges with Cleveland Place which merges with Lafayette Street which runs parallel to Broadway in SoHo and becomes 4th Avenue in the Village before turning into Park Avenue in Midtown and the Upper East Side.

BROOKLYN BATTERY TUNNEL. FDR essentially terminates going under a portion of Battery Park to the west side where you’ll circle back around into the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and head east into Brooklyn, which leads to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Staten Island. Stay on the right side.

West Side: Highway 9A – Holland & Brooklyn Battery Tunnels

The highway 9A slows considerably this far south in Manhattan and essentially functions like a city street as there are numerous cross streets. There’s an exit at West Houston for the northern end of SoHo.

HOLLAND TUNNEL ACCESS. Not available directly from the West Side Highway. Head south / west on Watts / Varick Street [Varick is 7th Avenue above Houston]. Or use Canal Street to access the Holland Tunnel. On the south side of Canal heading east, you have to do a loop to circle around and head north to cross Canal. Heading from east to west, it's a right side exit. From the FDR take the Grand Street / Williamsburg Bridge exit.

BROOKLYN BATTERY TUNNEL. Accessible via 9A and FDR [see above]. From highway 9A you have to turn left into the Brooklyn Batter Tunnel.

IV. Ferries

Staten Island / Liberty Island / Governor’s Island

You can catch ferries to Staten Island and Governor’s Island at the Whitehall Ferry Terminal on the east end of Battery Park.

You can catch a ferry to Liberty Island on the southeastern end of Battery Park. It’s a short walk west of the Whitehall Terminal and just south of Clinton Castle which was a mid 19th century immigration processing center.
