If you’re coming to town and looking for a NYC walking tour, you might be humming that catchy song about 42nd Street from the musical of the same name:
Hear the beat of dancing feet
It’s the song I love the melody of
But there’s more to New York City than just Broadway and Times Square.
If you are not familiar with Local Expeditions, we take folks – locals and out-of-towners alike – to see lesser known, but enthralling local spots. The guide who leads your expedition specifically designs it. This makes us #trulylocal as well as ensures that your expedition leader is not only an expert about their locale and subject matter, but also passionate about what they are doing. We have small groups (10 people max in our largest group) and the camaraderie among all of us during the 2-3 hours we spend together makes a Local Expedition a memorable experience.
So, even though you might take a stroll through uber-crowded Times Square/42nd Street and/or attend a Broadway show during your visit to NYC, we suggest you also check out some interesting areas such as Prospect Park, Park Slope and DUMBO in Brooklyn on our Ferry to DUMBO, CitiBike DUMBO and Prospect Park and Park Slope Brownstones expedition. See our other expeditions here.
Learning about the architecture of Park Slope and the urban planning and design history of Prospect Park is enlightening and fascinating; riding over the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges on a Citibike is a sublime experience while walking through DUMBO is a sight in itself, especially on Washington Street, where you can find the most instagrammed view in the world while, from Front Street, you can view the close Manhattan Skyline, which looks just like a Hollywood movie set. Taking the NY Ferry is a fantastic experience with awesome photo opportunities as well as a unique adventure most visitors never experience.
So, put on your comfortable shoes, heed the Beastie Boys anthem, and visit NYC’s largest borough (Brooklyn) for a unique NYC walking tour experience, a Local Expedition!
‘Cause I’ll be rockin’ this party eight days a week!
No sleep till
No sleep till Brooklyn!
