Vad du kommer att göra

So, uh, why does New York build "really, really big things?" We tend to do that a lot.

This is a fast-paced & funny walking essay that explores the answers to that question through the story of the Brooklyn Bridge. And to do so, we have to look the historical stories of immigration, engineering and political machines.

With this tour, we use the bridge and it's bloody, weird history to get a deeper understanding of what is not only New York City, but what makes any city a city.
Other things to note
- This will be a mile of walking, with frequent breaks so be prepared to do a little exercise.

- We will not end the tour where we start, but in a neighborhood called DUMBO where there will be many transportation options to easily get you where you need to go.

My tours are loud, energetic and a little manic, with a focus on the systemic and exploring what is 'history' and questioning what is a city.

I think tours are like essays; they're built on a strong thesis and build an argument as we travel through them. Also, I carry a rubber chicken. Long story, ask me about it on the tour.

I've been giving tours w/ AirBnB for a while now, and I think the guests who respond to my tours the strongest are those looking for something that is outside the "main" attraction (Times Square, Empire State Building) and those who are interested in hearing about the "why" of a city as opposed to the "what."

Var ni kommer att vara

We walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
We start in the Civic Center in Manhattan and ending in DUMBO. At the end of the tour, you will end up around plenty of food and transportation options and myself, I'll hide in an ice cream shop and stress eat an entire double scoop as you leave so we don't accidently bump into each other in the subway and it's awkward.

Reserve this informative, entertaining tour!! John is engaging, affable, and knows everything about the history of the Brooklyn Bridge and its place in the foundation and development of the City. He also knows a lot about the mafia, City zoning, Boss Tweed, and so many other NYC things. And is super funny! Great tour!!!

Excellent value. It turned into a private tour for me and my friend! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, fact-filled, and PASSIONATE about the topic. I’ve lived in NYC for 13 years but never walked over the Brooklyn bridge. He answered a lot of our questions and packed a ton of info in a short amount of time. Great addition to our trip.

Great tour. Experienced tour guide. My daughter and I were the only attendees the day we went, probably due to recent weather conditions, and John put in the same effort and time as he would have with a large group. I would recommend this tour.
