Event description

Description

Experience two of Brooklyn's top neighborhoods back-to-back: historic Brooklyn Heights, and trendy DUMBO. It will be a walk through time as we journey through 200 years in just 2 hours: from stately townhomes of the 1800's to cutting-edge loft buildings of the modern day.

Brooklyn Heights - Brooklyn Heights is a leafy neighborhood of brownstone town houses. Its serene, tree-lined streets hold centuries of profound history.

In Brooklyn Heights, we meander through the borough’s oldest area – known as ‘America’s first suburb’. We admire the outstanding architecture of landmarked homes, buildings and churches while learning about Brooklyn's history. We discover the stories and events through which the face of America was shaped by what was once its 3rd largest city. See the homes which once housed rich and important communities – now gentrified and upscale again. Can you guess which famous writers once lived in leafy Brooklyn Heights?

DUMBO - Brooklyn's once-quiet waterfront has been renewed into one of NYC's most modern hip neighborhoods. DUMBO stands for "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass" and is situated between the towering Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Its cobblestone streets are lined with trendy boutiques and galleries. These shops are located in repurposed former warehouses and factories, which have been converted for residential use too. Listen closely to learn the secret origin of this artsy neighborhood’s quirky name!
