The Brooklyn Perimeter is a 46.2 mile route across some of Brooklyn’s best neighborhoods, shoreline, and parks.

Route follows well established park paths and roads along East River, Jamaica Bay, and the Lower and Upper Bays shorelines and follows much of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, a 26 mile path along the Brooklyn waterfront from Greenpoint to Howard Beach.

The only section of the route that does not closely follow a body of water is the Eastern section of the Brooklyn/Queens border through East Williamsburg, Bushwick, Cypress Hills, and East New York.

The route’s only deviation from the Brooklyn border is a one block detour around The Hole, a collection of blocks sandwiched between Conduit Ave and Linden Blvd, that sits as much as 30 feet below sea level and is thus often flooded.

Look forward to seeing people take a crack at this and nail down faster times.

Thank you for doing this and sharing it! I just had the idea of running the Perimeter of Brooklyn a couple hours ago and Google brought me right here for exactly what I need.
