* See **DUMBO** in urban form

**Majestic Brooklyn Bridge**

Your tour begins at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge entrance. Here you will cross the world famous landmark, during which there will be ample time to discuss the fascinating history of the bridge and to photograph Manhattan, Brooklyn and New York Harbor. Accompanied by your expert local guide, you will hear about the origins of the ferry, travel across the East River, learn about the politics behind the building of the bridge, the complications around its construction, as well as the stories of designers and immigrant builders who made the project happen. 

**Trendy Brooklyn Heights**

You will then have the pleasure of strolling along the tree-lined streets of Brooklyn Heights, known as the finest of all the residential neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Filled with colorful people and beautiful architecture, you will explore the myriad streets and alleys of America’s first ‘suburb’. While you walk, you will learn about George Washington’s stand against British General Howe, listen to the plentiful stories of engineering and military defeats, as well as the history of the anti-slavery preachers and remarkable authors of the area. You will also pay a visit to the Brooklyn Promenade, for absolutely unbeatable views of Manhattan.

**DUMBO**

From the promenade, you will walk down to the ferry landing area and explore a small part of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). Formerly a manufacturing and industrial district, the area suffered from economic decline and eventually fell into disrepair. Fortunately, due to a renewed appreciation for the architecture of the area and sizable investment, the once vacant factory lofts have now become very attractive destinations for artists and creatives alike. DUMBO has been transformed into a lively Brooklyn neighborhood, boasting many art galleries and high-end boutiques, pizzerias, a scenic waterfront and characterful cobblestone streets lined with historical architecture.
