There's no question that Brooklyn is one of NYC's most culturally alive and hippest burroughs. But how did it grow into the eclectic epicenter of cool that it is today? Peer back into its history during this three-hour walking tour!
You'll find yourself immersed in the burrough's fascinating history, enjoying insights into its 19th-century architectural explosion as it grew as a separate city and rival to Manhattan. Much of your walk will take place along the East River, touring Brooklyn Heights and its adjacent neighborhoods, while getting a feel for its diverse people and architecture, and discussing its art, food, and political scene.
Check out historic brownstone buildings and clapboard houses while meandering along tree-lined streets, while learning about legendary Brooklyn figures that helped give this scenic environment its edgy vibe. You'll also explore the gallery-district of DUMBO, the waterfront, and the Promenade, plus numerous other popular streets and sites as time allows.
Make sure you wear comfy walking shoes!
