What you'll do
In the 19th century, before Brooklyn was incorporated into New York City, it was starting to surpass Manhattan in population. There probably will be no New York City without Brooklyn agreeing to join its strength. Brooklyn has its own downtown, beautiful townhouse-laden streets, and even its own central park, Prospect Park, designed by the same man who designed Manhattan's Central Park. All that and more make Brooklyn not only attractive for the visit but very important in understanding NYC. Brooklyn's diverse range of attractions on our walk includes: - The famous Greenwood Cemetery with excellent skyline views - Industry City, home to artist studios, fledgling startups, and restaurants like Avocaderia. - Park Slope, home of the best brownstones - Gowanus, current heavyweight home of artist studios galore - The historic Boerum Hill with its glut of modern restaurants and more. On our way we will stop by at cozy coffeeshop for snack and later eat lunch at Dekalb market - home of 40 vendors who reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the borough. We will end close to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, a convenient place to enjoy great views of downtown Manhattan
Hi, My name is Olga, i'm a founder of Vodkatonik.com -NYC-based travel and lifestyle outlet. I was a tourist here myself before I decided to move for good. But coming here with friends and going on all the usual tours left me scratching my head about that New York City magic I’d read so much about. I liked the city, but where was this special spark? It wasn’t until my 3rd trip here -with the phone numbers of few locals willing to show me around -that the magic was revealed. After I vowed to get to know this city better than anyone else and to share every secret nook and cranny it had to offer
