What you'll do

Take a bike tour of Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the DUMBO warehouse district. After a quick tour of City Hall area, we roll over the Brooklyn Bridge with stops at the Manhattan and Brooklyn towers, for the perfect photo ops of the gorgeous Wall Street skyline. While there, I'll share historical insights into the twin icons of New York City's East River: the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. We'll continue on to the charming brownstone streets of Brooklyn Heights, where you'll see some of the most historic and luxurious homes dating back to the 19th century. After a stop at the beautiful Promenade, we'll zip through New York City's newest, most innovative and beautiful 85-acre waterfront playground, the Brooklyn Bridge Park (just opened in 2010). There will be stops and photo ops galore in the shabby-chic shipping and warehouse districts of DUMBO, Vinegar Hill and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. You’ll get a peek into the history of Brooklyn’s maritime shipping industry that once thrived on these docks and cobblestone streets.

Where you'll be

The sweeping vistas of the Brooklyn Bridge, exteriors of noteworthy Brooklyn brownstones, such the home Cher lived in in "Moonstruck." After we take in the magnificent view from the promenade we'll see how defunct shipping piers have been converted into a beautiful and functional 21st century park. Then we'll see warehouses built to store coffee, tobacco and Brillo pads, that are now chic shops, swank restaurants and luxurious lofts.
