Directions to the Fireboat House

Directions to the East River Park Fireboat House

By Bike

From the North: Enter East River Park at the foot of East 10th, East 6th, Houston or Delancey Street. Once you enter East River Park, ride south – you will see Grand Street and a seal park/spray shower just before the last ballfield (Ballfield 1/2) in the park. Behind the seal spray shower, at the height of Grand Street, you will see a two-story red brick building, the Fire Boat House. The building is right next to the East River. From the South: Enter the Park from the south by biking on the Manhattan GreenWay. Once you enter East River Park, you will pass a parking lot and the amphitheater before reaching the first ballfield. Right after that ballfield you will see the seal spray shower at the height of Grand Street and the Fire Boat House.

By Subway

Take the F, J, or M to Essex/Delancey stop. When you exit the station, walk east on the south side of Delancey Street (the Williamsburg Bridge will be above you and on your left) until you reach FDR Drive. Take the pedestrian bridge at the foot of Delancey Street across the highway. The Fire Boat House will be on your left, just before the big ballfield. The building is a two-story red brick building right next to the East River and there is a seal spray shower park in front.

By Bus

Take either the M14A or the M22 to last stop, which is on Grand and FDR Drive. At the end of Grand Street, turn right and walk along the service road of the FDR for one block to reach Cherry Street. Cross Cherry Street to enter Corlears Hook Park and walk past the flagpole to the pedestrian bridge across the FDR Drive to enter East River Park. You will see an amphitheater straight ahead, and if you look north you will see the Fire Boat House, a two-story red brick building, right on the East River. Turn left once you enter the park to reach the Fireboat House, which is just behind the ball field.
