Brooklyn's cultural institutions offer so many wonderful activities. Only problem: shuffling between them. So now the Heart of Brooklyn, the umbrella group for the Brooklyn Museum, Botanic Garden, Children's Museum, Public Library, Prospect Park and its Zoo, is offering the HOB Connection, a free shuttle bus running along three routes, and helping Manhattanites embrace Brooklyn, too. Museum Mile to Brooklyn Style runs on Sundays, picking up passengers outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and at Bryant Park, then driving to all six HOB institutions. Saturday Scene runs from Bay Ridge (second Saturdays), Red Hook (third Saturdays), and Williamsburg (fourth Saturdays) to HOB settings. And the Target First Saturdays Shuttle runs on the first Saturday of each month, and takes folks from the museum to "places to eat, drink and shop, to support local merchants in surrounding neighborhoods." The bus has tour guides, maps, brochures and coupon books for said local merchants.
