Rich was fully engaged and created an interactive tour. Great for both the art enthusiast and a family with curious kids. Over 2 hours we meandered through the neighborhood, observed a ton of art, found a few happy art souvenirs, spoke to artists, and came a way with a rich cultural and historical appreciation for Gowanus and it's art treasures! I attended with my family of 4 (2 kids age 10 and 14). All of us loved the experience and will do it again next time we visit NYC.

My girlfriend and I joined Rich for his Brooklyn Street Art Walk of Gowanus. Rich is knowledgeable and passionate about street art and the walking tour was really great! He has deep knowledge about the local artists and also weaved the history of the land into different parts of the tour which was unique and interesting. Highly recommend wether you’re an out of towner or a local looking to get deeper appreciation for your backyard.

Rich Garr’s mid-November tour of Gowanus Street Art was an eye and mind-opening delight -- a perfect way to walk and see Brooklyn. I will not be able to walk down any street from now on without being on the alert for interesting graffitt (words) or temporary art – art that is carefully made, deliberately placed, art that will eventually disappear. We all met on a corner in Gowanus, staying safely distant . Rich gave a brief history of street art/ graffitti going back to the late 60s. We saw commemorative plaques reminding us of important moments in the history of Gowanus that turned out to be paper facsimiles., many political posters and smaller works, sculptures placed by iron-workers, examples of “yarn-bombing” and learned building histories. Rich was energetic and extremely knowledgeable. I am eager to attend another walk with Rich soon.

Rich's street art tour of Gowanus was a great primer on the many forms of graffiti and street art, from tagging to stickers to large-scale murals, with details about the artists as well as historical context about the Gowanus Canal and its surrounding area. My eyes were opened to the neighborhood in a whole new way!

The street art was amazing. Rich was delightful and very informed. In addition to the street art we also got a history lesson about the area. I was surprised that I enjoyed our street art walk as much as I did.
