By popular demand, Joe returns to escort us through the “Fourth Largest City in the USA”. Our trip will take us to several old, diverse Brooklyn neighborhoods, including Sunset Park with its harbor view and stone houses, Chinatown, Hassidic Borough Park and Italian Bensonhurst. Then we’ll continue on our way to Coney Island, sometimes called “Sodom by the Sea,” and Brighton Beach, dubbed “Little Odessa.” Before we visit other legendary Brooklyn neighborhoods, we will have lunch at the Guest House, an Eastern European and Georgian restaurant. Then it’s off to Sheepshead Bay (originally a fishing village), Flatbush (think Barbra Streisand and Woody Allen) and Crown Heights on our way back to downtown Brooklyn and the road home – all time and weather permitting.
Cost includes transportation, guide, lunch, snacks and gratuities.
