We loved our tour guide, Andrew Silverstein, and our tour. Andrew was so informed, clear, nice, and well-organized. Both areas we visited are so full of history and charm. We will recommend this tour enthusiastically.

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour round Brooklyn and DUMBO, Andrew was very knowledgeable and took time out to answer everyone’s questions. We missed the one for Bryant Park and Grand Central which we were very disappointed about but there’s always next time!

stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up

the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
