So many of Brooklyn's waterfront neighborhoods were once industrial hubs. Previously left to decay, these areas have found new life.
Your tour will begin in lower Manhattan, at the Wall St Pier 11. From there, we will journey by ferry to Brooklyn.
There, we will arrive in historic Red Hook, which was settled by the Dutch in the 1600s. This neighborhood was key to the waterfront industrial economy of Brooklyn, and was formerly the largest container port in America. Previously an area with a rough reputation, it also has become a site of immense residential and business growth. We will by pass by growing new industries, with visits to small-batch factories and artist studios. You will also see the best views of the Statue of Liberty from land in NYC.
You will have an opportunity to sample some of the great food these areas have to offer.
Come discover why this is one of Brooklyn's fastest-developing neighborhoods!
This is a great tour for urban explorers, artists, photographers, and history buffs.
