The tour in Williamsburg area was really interesting. The tour guide provided many information and the walk was interesting as well as a pleasure. At the end of the tour the guide provided a map and indications which allowed us to continue exploring the area. I recommend it.

It was one of the best tours I took in New York. The tour guid covered different aspects of past and present live not only Williamsburg but also some other parts of Brooklyn. It was very interesting and informative tour with emphasis on history, culture, food, architecture and future development of this neighborhood. Despite rainy weather my friend and I... More

Sometime ago, two friends and I did the Williamsburg tour with Jeff. It was a hot summer day so to break it up we dropped in to a couple of really cool places. I found the tour to be incredibly insightful and I found Jeff to be sweet, informative and open to interaction. I highly recommend Brooklyn unplugged for anyone... More

My wife and I really enjoyed this very informative tour. There were only 3 of us plus our excellent guide Jeff, who answered lots of questions. It was great fun!

I did the tour of street art/graffiti with Jeff Stirewalt. I learned a ton about history and art and Brooklyn. It was amazing and I would recommend it to everyone I know. I am looking forward to a time to bring my teenage kids to do the same tour and I am looking forward to doing other tours with Brooklyn... More

In the graffiti hub of NYC, Bushwick, I attended a workshop organised by Brooklyn Unplugged Tours. It was very informative, interactive and fun. The artist who ran the workshop was very experienced and created a collegial atmosphere. Some of us (me!) had never even held a spray paint can before, and ended up making a mural we were all very...

Tour guide Jeff only knew the bare minimum of what he was touring. He was not very welcoming. The first thing he said was not "hello" or "welcome". He started off by asking "why are you doing this in winter?" If he did not want to lead tours during the winter time, that is his choice. But, if he offers... More

To be clear: what I did not answer was a barrage of 10-20 silly questions that were not serious; and were hardly necessary to understand the art, artists or neighborhood. I provided extensive amounts of relevant information, and answered appropriate questions which were asked with sincerity and not blurted out randomly. I have spent years in this neighborhood, have spoken... More

As an admirer of graffiti art, I found the graffiti art workshop Jeff organized to be incredibly informative and fun. A seasoned local graffiti artist led the workshop. The graffiti artist not only provided a brief history of graffiti art, but he also covered the various techniques used to create graffiti art. What I enjoyed the most of the workshop... More
