Presentvilles, NYC: Smith Street

Carroll Gardens’ main drag is both easygoing and packed with giving options.

ShareThis

CROWD AVOIDANCE
The ten-block-long strip is never terribly crowded, so it’s a good weekend destination. Start at Bergen Street and walk down Smith Street toward Carroll Street.

GETTING THERE
Take the F to the Bergen Street stop; it’s about 25 minutes from 14th Street. The subway is on the corner of Bergen and Smith Streets.

GETTING CASH
There are numerous Washington Mutual cash dispensers about one third of the way toward Carroll from Bergen, next to the Rite Aid.

GENERAL STORE HOURS
Monday through Saturday, noon to 7. On December 24, most stores will be open noon to 4.

SNACK, CAFFEINATE, FIND A BATHROOM
Jump-start yourself with a cup of coffee at the Fall Café (307 Smith St.; 718-403-0230).

EXIT STRATEGY
Program this number into your phone: 718-783-6465. Ten minutes before you’re ready to leave, call Arecibo Car Service; it guarantees pickup in ten minutes or less from the time you called ($23 to midtown Manhattan; 718-783-6465). Tell them to pick you up at Eckerd drugstore (320 Smith St.; 718-403-9371).
