Tours of Williamsburg, Brooklyn's most diverse neighborhood, are given on some Sundays. Also on Sundays: tours of Coney Island, including a visit to the Coney Island Museum. The tours discuss the architecture, history, and landscape of Brooklyn, at a healthy fast past. Be prepared to walk!

New York On Foot
The Lower Broadway Walking Tour is a historical/architectural guided walking tour from Bowling Green to City Hall (the same route as the Ticker Tape Parade!!). I discuss the history of Manhatten from its colonial trading post days (17th Century) to the mid-20th century by reference to the growth and development of lower Broadway. I also provide a visual aid packet full of old pictures, maps, and lithographs to give you a visual sense of what I'm referring to.
