Full description
Discover Brooklyn’s emerging art scene on a private 3-hour tour. See the artistic transformation that is happening in Brooklyn, with industrial areas being transformed into art centers, largely propelled by the energetic DIY movement and other active artists. On this tour you will explore the graffiti and galleries in Brooklyn and learn the difference between tags, throw-ups, vandalism, street art, graffiti, murals, and wheat pastes.

The tour begins in the formerly blighted Bushwick district, where an amazing amount of art is happening not only on the streets but also within warehouses. In a single building, you can see an art gallery, a distillery, and some people making their own organic beef jerky. You can sample some small-batch whiskey before heading to the Red Hook neighborhood.

You will catch panoramic views of New York Harbor and visit the home of the Brooklyn Working Artists Coalition. See the nearby neighborhood of Dumbo (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), where creativity is bursting forth in the forms of street art, performance art, music, and poetry.

The 4-hour tour takes you on to the newly-chic but still somewhat gritty neighborhood of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, where there is a thriving indie music, art, and hipster culture. You can compare and contrast the transformation of the neighborhoods over Brooklyn-roasted coffee. The 5-hour tour continues on to Manhattan, where you can visit the classic artsy neighborhoods of Chelsea and SoHo as well as the trendy Meatpacking District and High Line Park.
