Walk the bridge, see amazing street art, and explore the new Brooklyn!


After years of rivalry for the heart and soul of the region, Brooklyn was incorporated into New York City in 1898, thereby ceding the battle for supremacy to its hated rival, Manhattan. Old timers referred to it as "the mistake of '98, " well into the new century. Today Brooklyn is having its late revenge as real estate prices rapidly surpass those of Manhattan. Come see the beautiful tree lined streets, waterfront views, and creative communities that have made Brooklyn so desirable to tech start ups and street artists alike. Along the way we'll walk the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, explore the lovely Fulton Ferry district, and finish the day with a walk through the famous street art section of newly resurgent Bushwick.
