    Stop At: Revolutionary Tours NYC, New York City, NY 10023

    Our journey begins by crossing the historic Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan. Learn about the 14-year epic saga of the great engineering achievement of the 19th century that connected the “twin cities” of Brooklyn and New York.

    We’ll continue in DUMBO where you’ll discover how an antiquated warehouse and factory district was transformed into a prime residential, cultural, and retail/commercial/tech center that businesses like Etsy, Jacques Torres, and West Elm call home.

    As we progress through the Brooklyn tour you’ll see the stunning Brooklyn Bridge Park, you’ll see awe-inspiring views from below the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge, plus a perfectly restored 1922 carousel revolving within a “crystal” box.

    We’ll explore Brooklyn Heights, New York City’s first suburb and historic district, with spectacular views of Manhattan from the Promenade. We’ll stand near where George Washington conducted a maritime retreat that saved American independence during the Revolutionary War and where Robert Fulton ran his steamboat ferries to and from the Brooklyn suburbs. Discover dozens of elegant pre-Civil War homes and hear the stories of famous residents such as Truman Capote, Norman Mailer and Arthur Miller. See a house from the movie “Moonstruck,” and discover the 1847 church visited by Abraham Lincoln and led by the most famous preacher in America.
