Stairway to walk Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn

On my visit, I want to take the subway to the closest spot to walk the Promenade. The map looks like "CLARK". Is that correct?

Wondering how I get to the Promenade after I get off the subway...are there signs? Do you see it?

Then I want to walk to DUMBO. Is that too far to walk? Anyone suggest a route?

Then I want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan. How do I find the stairs to bridge?

I have googled till I can't stand it anymore, bought two maps, 1 guidebook and sat in Barnes and Noble for an hour trying to get an exact answer to these questions.

If anyone can shed some light on this question, please help!

Everything you write sounds familiar.

I think it was Clark (a few years ago).

Aside from that the Promenade, the famous pizza place with the long line, the famous ice cream place, the little park sort of under the Bridge and the stairway onto the Bridge are all very close to each other.

You can see the water and the Bridge so you know the direction. I walked under an underpass and the stairs onto the Bridge were right beside me. If you can't find it just ask someone walking by you.

I also walked a couple of blocks parallel to the Promenade just to look at the Brownstones.

It's very difficult to get lost there.
