Hi! I'm a tour guide and Chief Experience Officer at Untapped New York! Together with my awesome partners Jeff, Mandy, Gabby, Heather, Jeremy and Ashley we will host your experience! I grew up in New York and always had a passion for NYC's diverse history which I have been excited to share with locals and visitors alike for the last few years. After writing several plays about New York, I decided to take the plays out of the theaters and directly into the streets... where the stories actually happened! I can't wait to explore the city with you and show you its hidden gems!

We will explore the Brooklyn Bridge and its surroundings, starting from Manhattan and crossing over to Brooklyn. We will see an abandoned park hidden in plain sight on the Manhattan side, see where the nation's first white house was, locate the hidden statue dedicated to the family of engineers who built the bridge, talk about the champagne vaults hidden in the Brooklyn anchorages and so much more...

Just the perfect way to cross the bridge. I would have never passed all those places he introduced us to! Since we have had a tight schedule ahead of us, we had a few non Bridge-related topics to ask him. That was no issue as all to him. Rebecca

Empfehlenswerte Tour mit einem etwas anderen Blick auf das tolle Bauwerk. Justin ist förmlich vernarrt in dieses Bauwerk. So stelle ich mir eine Führung vor.

Justin contacted us the day before the tour to let us know that Mandy would be our guide. Mandy has degrees in geology and archeology and worked as a Park Ranger in NYC-area sites. Her passion for and deep knowledge about the Brooklyn Bridge was evident. At the beginning of the tour she shared a book published in 1893-ish that collected all of the speeches given by dignitaries at the Bridge's opening ceremony. She also brought a large collection of photos and documents related to the bridge's planning and construction. She told us about the history, engineering, and societal importance of the bridge. I'm sure that Justin is wonderful but we felt very lucky to be touring with Mandy. Highly recommend.

This tour was worth every penny. Take your camera because you’ll get an unbelievable view and notice more than you possibly could just walking Brooklyn Bridge on your own. Justin, the guide, is a total pro, he’s probably given this tour gazillions of times, but still has plenty of patience to answer simple questions and let us enjoy discovering what is new to us.

Justin is the bomb! Who knew there were champagne vaults in the Brooklyn Bridge! You need an expert to weave you through the Brooklyn Bridge, where everyone wants to go but don’t know the tips. Justin took us down little known staircases, told the incredible story of the bridge, and showed us a great afternoon walking from Manhattan to Brooklyn Heights/Dumbo.

This tour was AWESOME. In addition to sharing the history of the bridge in compelling short stories, Justin shared cool one-off facts about the bridge (no spoiler alerts here!). He also did a good job with the logistics of getting the group on and off the bridge, no small feat given how crowded the bridge is with pedestrians and bikers. This is not the first tour I’ve taken with Justin or Untapped Cities. Consistent with other tours, this was well-designed and it included information that is little known even to New Yorkers. This tour is absolutely worth your time.
