DescriptionLearn about the history of the Brooklyn Bridge on a customizable 2 or 3-hour Brooklyn Bridge architecture and waterfront district tour, and discover the challenges of its construction. Each tour is expertly guided by New York's first family of tour guides, featuring 4th generation New Yorkers who are eager to share their knowledge to make your Brooklyn experience completely unique. They will tell you about the civic history of Brooklyn's waterfront neighborhoods, such as Fulton Ferry and DUMBO. And you can extend your tour with an optional visit to Brooklyn Heights, one of New York's most historic neighborhoods. The 2-hour walking tour highlights the Brooklyn Bridge as a marvel of engineering. Learn about the city's politics and the notable citizens who took part in the bridge's construction. Hear stories about the family tragedies and civic triumphs on a 45-minute walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Then, stroll through the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) district. In the 1970s, the area was named DUMBO by locals who wanted to deter real estate developers. Nevertheless, the area has become the industrial-chic and premier artsy neighborhood that it is today. Continue to the historic Fulton Ferry Landing, with jaw-dropping views of Manhattan and beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park. Select the 3-hour tour option to include a visit to Brooklyn Heights, the first neighborhood in New York City to be named a National Historic Landmark, and widely noted for its variety of 19th and 20th-century architecture.
