This is a 3-hour tour that begins with a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, an icon of New York City for over 125 years, with spectacular views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The tour then moves on to a stroll of Brooklyn Heights, America’s and New York City’s first suburb. The tour then explores the neighborhood DUMBO before ending at the Fulton Ferry Landing. 
Visit the Brooklyn Bridge – The tour begins from the fountain inside City Hall Park, near the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge entrance. It’s a full mile (1.6 k) across the bridge, but we will be making plenty of stops to talk about the history and design of the bridge and to have the opportunity to capture scenic photographs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New York Harbor.
Visit Brooklyn Heights – The bridge lets out in on or Brooklyn’s finest residential neighborhoods, filled with interesting people and architecture. Nicknamed America’s first suburb, Brooklyn Heights will certainly amaze. Learn about George Washington’s doomed stand against British marines and walk past the homes of Truman Capote, Arthur Miller, and Norman Mailer. Last but not least, we will visit the promenade for arguably the best views of Manhattan and New York Harbor.
Visit Dumbo – From the promenade, we will walk down to the ferry landing area and explore a small part of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). Once a manufacturing and industrial district, economic change sapped the area of its economic strength, leaving it large and vacant factory lofts as attractive destinations for artists starving for large and affordable living space. The neighborhoods unique urban landscape is the partially the result of being below two bridges, an interesting sight to see.
