Cititrek and BROOKLYN

The most populated of the five boroughs, Breukelen (Dutch),  home to about 2.6 million and if it were a city, it would be the fourth most populous in the United States.  When New York beckoned it to join the consolidation movement in the 1890s, there were many who said NAY. However, the fear of fire changed their minds; Brooklyn wells were drying up and New York’s promise of a steady water supply was a deciding factor.

It is a borough of neighborhoods with an organic flow, from Brighton Beach (Russian) to Sunset Park (Chinese) to Borough Park (Orthodox Jewish) to Williamsburg (hipsters) to Dyker Heights (Italian). From quaint homes to brownstones to high risers, from beaches to ball parks, Brooklyn is its own entity! Fuhgeddaboudit!

Many public walking tours are 2  hours.*  Reservations are required before booking online.  For reservations or additional tour information call the

TESTIMONIAL:
I just wanted to express how much I enjoyed the Brooklyn Heights tour today. I had plans to go on the tour with my mother, but she was not able to come, so I brought along my 17 year old son. I was not sure if he would enjoy himself, but to both of our surprise, he really had a good time. You were very interesting to listen to and we both enjoyed the things we saw and the many facts that we learned. This was such a great way to spend two hours and I would especially recommend these tours as a way for parents to spend time with their teens. We are looking forward to another tour and the next time we will bring my mom along. Thanks again,
Tanya, Brooklyn, NY
