Park Slope and Carroll Gardens: the grande dames of Brooklyn, abounding with beautiful architecture, diversity, and a storied past. Where George Washington fought the very first battle of the Revolution, where Al Capone was married, where a small mill-stream was turned into a great canal, and where stands the tallest "subway" station in the world.
On this tour, we'll explore all these places, and more. We'll pass a ton of cool places to hang out, and also travel through Gowanus, an industrial wonderland that's become one of New York's great artistic communities.
I am a musician, photographer, and writer whose mind and heart are involved with a lot of different passions- a big one of which is history and geography: particularly that of New York. I grew up in the region and have a ton of knowledge about the neighborhoods and stories of the city. I'm a total NYC nerd and I love sharing that with others. I also love to eat and go out, and know a lot of the best hangs in the city. You can check out some of my musings at ventilateblog.wordpress.com Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
