What you'll do

We start our hike in historic Brooklyn Heights where we will see beautiful "Brownstone Brooklyn" and learn about the history of the first suburb of New York City. We will walk from the Heights and watch the spectacular sunset behind the Manhattan skyline from the promenade. We hike down through DUMBO and watch as the sun disappears and the lights turn on in the city, a magical part of the day in New York. In DUMBO we will see many cool cafes, restaurants, galleries, and shops and then we take a breathtaking view from the Fulton Ferry Landing, it is then optional for you to take a ride on the ferry under the stars. If the dates and times listed are not convenient for you, please send me a message and we can set up a time that is best for you!
