Full description
After meeting your local tour guide, you'll stroll through this tree-lined district while hearing tales of the fascinating characters who once called Brooklyn Heights home. Some of the famous residents you'll hear about include Truman Capote, Arthur Miller, and Anais Nin. You'll also visit the sites that make this one of New York's most desirable neighborhoods. Learn how Brooklyn is connected to the American Revolution and the Underground Railroad, and hear about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and the juxtaposition between urban progress and historic preservation.

Your guide will also point out places that may look familiar from the silver screen. See the homes where "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "The Crucible" were written. You'll walk in the footsteps of some of pop culture's most famous figures. This tour covers it all: history, architecture, literature, photography, pop-culture, the occult, and more.
