Come discover Brooklyn’s most historic neighborhood, before journeying to its trendiest district with stunning waterfront views.

While today Brooklyn is just one of 5 NYC boroughs, it was until 1898 an independent city, and one of the largest in the country. We will meet near the former city hall of Brooklyn, and begin an exploration into the past through Brooklyn Heights. With homes dating back to the 1820s, a visit to the Heights is a charming journey back in time. Discover a neighborhood of beautiful streets that attracted residents like Walt Whitman, Truman Capote, Arthur Miller, H.P. Lovecraft, and numerous celebrities today. See the site of a former Underground Railroad stop, where Abraham Lincoln twice visited. Walk the streets where the Brooklyn Bridge was designed and planned. See beautiful brownstones and former stables. See the sweeping views from the Promenade, and so much more!

From there, we will journey down to the neighborhood of DUMBO, a former industrial powerhouse that is now home to trendy boutiques, tech companies, and famous eateries. In DUMBO, you will cross cobblestone streets and former trolley tracks and see the most-Instagrammed spot in Brooklyn. You will see how the revitalization of a neighborhood virtually abandoned a half-century ago. We then visit Brooklyn Bridge Park, an 85-acre waterfront park built on the site of former shipping piers and industrial warehouses. Since it first opened less than a decade ago, it has become of the city's most popular parks, and you will see why.

Discover why Brooklyn— New York’s largest borough— is, to quote Art Garfunkel, a world of its own.

After our journey there, you will be able to take an subway or ferry back to Manhattan, continue to explore on your own, or walk the bridge!
