Full description
This is an opportunity to tour the Brooklyn Bridge with Kriss Roebling, a lifelong New Yorker and the great-great-grandson of Washington and Emily Roebling, the creators of the Brooklyn Bridge. He has spent his entire life steeped in family lore and history, and so has a unique perspective on the amazing story of his family and the bridge that they built.

The tour begins at the Manhattan tower of the bridge. You will learn the history of the bridge, as well as explore the bridge's nooks and crannies, learning little known family lore and historic items. As the groups are very small, you will have the opportunity to discover and photograph these rarely seen items from the stunning vantage point of the bridge which gave them historic significance.

After crossing the bridge, you will head down to explore the unique neighborhood which surrounds the Brooklyn Bridge, DUMBO, as well as have the opportunity to ask Kriss questions. This is truly one of the most unique walking tours in the world!
