An abridged history of a bridge, and a nice walk to boot!
This quirky history tour will take you from the old Five Points district to Brooklyn Heights, where you'll check out some of both areas' important landmarks.
But the focal point of the tour is the famed Brooklyn Bridge itself. Thanks to an insightful local guide, you'll be treated to a unique historical perspective on its origins, plus the herculean efforts behind its construction.
Along the way, you'll also get a healthy dose of oddball trivia- and why shouldn't you? Whether you're in the 19th century or the present, this is New York, after all.
Note: The exact meeting location is given upon confirmation of booking. Tour includes 1-2 miles of walking.
