Full description
Pedal off from the famous Dumbo area under the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge, and get sweeping views of Lower Manhattan across the East River. Continue to the redeveloped Brooklyn Navy Yard, and then head into the southern part of bohemian Williamsburg. Cycle to Fort Green Park and pass the preserved government buildings. Get stunning views of the Soldiers and Sailors Arch and Brooklyn Public Library from Grand Army Plaza. Then, experience the cycling paradise of Prospect Park before you ride into Red Hook for a quick snack and drink.  Hear how the area went from being the busiest port in the world to a place of crime, before artists moved in to the brick warehouses and brownstone houses. See local landmarks such as Steve's Key Lime Pies and Widow Jane Distillery, and grab some snacks along the way. End with a visit to affluent Brooklyn Heights, the first preserved historic neighborhood in the United States.

Exactly wath we wanted: ride around Brooklyn for hours, learning all kinds of things and exploring different neiberhood of the borough. Also know about how it was and how it will be, regarding to urban devlopment, transportation and real estate issues. Thanks to John for sharing his passion about Brooklyn !

Une balade qui fait découvrir un Brooklyn méconnu, des quartiers différents et charges d’histoire. Notre guide Frank était passionnant. Merci à lui. Le déjeuner pizza un très bon moment partagé. Pour finir une vue magnifique sur Manhattan. Je recommande vivement cette activité !
