Fulton Street, named after Robert Fulton, is a long east-west street in northern Brooklyn. A street of the same name in Manhattan was linked to this street by Fulton with his steam ferries.
Robert Fulton was an American engineer and inventor who is widely credited with developing the first commercially successful steamboat. In 1800, he was commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte to design the Nautilus, which was the first practical submarine in history (although there were a few earlier subs).
