BROOKLYN HALF DAY WALKING TOUR
Brooklyn has become a worldwide brand unto itself, but it is still authentic, fiercely loved and defended by the people who call it home. To this day, Brooklynites will argue that you haven’t really seen New York City until you’ve seen Brooklyn. As Marilyn Monroe further confirms, “I just like walking around. I think the view is better from Brooklyn – you can look back over and see Manhattan. That’s the best view. But it isn’t the only view. It’s the people, and the streets … and the atmosphere. I just like it.” This tour will give you the opportunity to form your own impressions of a special borough, with its stunning postcard views, storied streets, and a distinct laid-back neighborhood vibe pulsing with creativity. Discover Prospect Park, where the architects of Central Park fixed their “mistakes”. Relish Brooklyn Heights” influence in NYC’s social and cultural histories. Uncover secrets behind DUMBO’s name, along with its transformation from a desolate area of abandoned factories and warehouses into high-end residential and commercial units. And finish with a stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan, wondering how it was all built, with Brooklyn undergoing more change in the last few decades than any other place in New York City.
