Capture the beauty of New York City by walking the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset, with boats cruising below, and the Statue of Liberty off in the distance, it's truly a sight to behold.
Mr. Scher, owner of Walking Tours Manhattan, said, "The Brooklyn Bridge is such a popular sightseeing icon, that I wanted to combine all its unique factors into a walking food tour.”
The tour meets in Lower Manhattan and walks over the bridge to Brooklyn in about 25 minutes. Participants learn the history of the bridge and see many famous landmarks from the bridge, including Governor’s Island, a former Coast Guard facility sitting in the middle of the East River.
In Brooklyn it's pizza from Grimaldi's, where Michelle Obama and her children visited this past summer. For dessert its gourmet ice cream from the Ice Cream Factory, owned by the River Café, a local waterfront restaurant. Major sights include the Fulton Ferry Landing, and several landmark buildings from the 1860's.
Larry Davidson and his wife Cheryl visiting from Buffalo, were in New York for the Thanksgiving holiday and found the Brooklyn Bridge tour on a Google search for NYC food tours, "I'm from Georgia, and on this tour I've tasted the best pizza, and ice cream in the city, and saw the Brooklyn Bridge all on the same tour, you bet I'll be back on my next trip."
All the tours are led by Bruce Scher a native New Yorker and licensed by the City of New York. His tours have been written up in the New York Times, and Time Out NY Magazine.
