What To Expect

Begin this walking tour by meeting the guide in front of the Tweed Courthouse in Manhattan. Learn about the history of Brooklyn en route to the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge. Pass Lower Manhattan sites like City Hall and the Municipal Building along the way.

Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and learn about its history and architecture. The hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge is one of the oldest in the United States, dating back to 1869, when construction started. It spans 1,595 feet and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge ever constructed. Take in the incredible view of New York City landmarks from here, like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower and the Chrysler Building, to name a few.

In Brooklyn, head to the neighborhood of Dumbo, which stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. This area has become one of New York City’s premier arts districts, with venues like the Klompching Gallery, known for contemporary fine art photography; St Ann’s Warehouse, a performing arts institution; and the A.I.R. Gallery, the first all-female cooperative gallery in the United States. (Note: These galleries are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.)

Visit Jacques Torres Chocolate, a popular shop featuring handmade artisan chocolates, for a truffle or cookie — or anything else that’s chocolate, of course.

Finally, wind up the tour at the 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park along the East River. Be sure to bring a camera, because the waterfront views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge are stunning.

Denice_T, May 2023
A wonderful and informative tour, at exactly the right pace by a knowledgeable tour guide. Kevin is obviously very passionate about history and it was a well constructed and enjoyable experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting New York, whether a first timer or a more regular visitor as myself.
Good tour!

Great experience! Charles was knowledgeable and the tour was very informative. Would recommend booking with Inside Out Tours.
Great walk
Paul_P, Apr 2023
Great way to see parts of the city we didn't know and get a history of the area. My only concern was that the group size (24) was a little bit big. Half that number would have been better, but overall very good
Fun time

The last couple of stops in Brooklyn were unnecessary. We waited for parties that then left the group anyway.
Highly recommend

Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided just the right amount of detail. The walk was just the right length, especially on a chilly day.

Our guide Kevin was outstanding. He knew his facts, was pleasant, didn't lose any of us. We had beautiful weather. I'm very happy with the tour. It was a present for my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas.

We had a fantastic knowledgeable guide. This is the only way to learn about the history of the Bridge and the Dumbo (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) area. Would highly recommend.
