What You Can Expect
While you walk, your guide will tell you about the architecture and history of the Brooklyn Bridge. Learn about the family that constructed the famous bridge and the great losses they suffered during the process. Take in incredible views of the NYC skyline and stop for plenty of photo opportunities. You'll catch views of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower and the Chrysler Building.
Once you reach Brooklyn, descend into the neighborhood ‘Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass,’ known as Dumbo. Here, visit a complex of art galleries dedicated to different styles of contemporary Brooklyn art (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). Enjoy the culture of the neighborhood as you visit the Jacques Torres Chocolate Factory and a hot chocolate shop. Purchase any yummy desserts that catch your eye (you did walk all the way across the Brooklyn Bridge, after all – you deserve a treat).
End your tour in Brooklyn Bridge Park, the largest development in Brooklyn since the creation of Prospect Park. Here you can enjoy scenic waterfront views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge.
This was a great tour! We learned the history of the Brooklyn Bridge and some information about DUMBO. We both thought this was one of our favorite tours we did out of 7 on our recent trip. The guide was very enthusiastic! The tour does talk about art galleries in DUMBO. We did not see these as it mentions so not sure what that was about. A must do. Ask your guide how to get to Brooklyn Heights and spend 30 minutes walking there and back to DUMBO so you can see an incredible neighborhood. Also, this tour ends in Brooklyn Bridge Park. You will either need to walk back across the bridge or look up public transportation from the park to wherever you are staying.
Great guide, great weather, interesting information and history lesson. Enjoyed the experience very much.
