An experience like no other!   Borough Park is the center of one of Brooklyn's ultra-orthodox communities that is unique, even in comparison to others in the rest of New York City.

Your guide will meet you at the SW corner to the entrance of the 55th Street station of the D train in Brooklyn. The Borough Park native will be your escort through the Jewish experience of this HASIDIC enclave. The community of ultra-othodox Jews has been insulated from societal changes for decades. Follow your guide along 13th and 14th Avenues, the retail and residential life forces of this neighborhood.  During your stroll, you will visit shops and see the extraordinary cultural and educational institutions that service the different Hasidic Jewish sects.  Hear stories about growing up in the neighborhood after WWII and how it has changed.    Modest attire is requested.
