Brooklyn is the second largest borough in New York City, has the highest population, and was once a city independent from New York up until 1890. It is now home to a diverse set of ethnic groups and has seen a renaissance as a center for technology start-ups, food purveyors and artisans. A boost in the local economy has resulted in a surge in development for both home and office spaces. It has also led to the creation of Brooklyn Bridge Park along the East River shoreline, which was once congested with factories and warehouses. The park spans 85 acres from Brooklyn Heights to DUMBO, which are the neighborhoods that this tour will cover.
We will meet in City Hall Park in Manhattan by the entrance of the 4,5,6 subway located on Centre St. From there will we start our run tour on the Brooklyn Bridge then into Brooklyn Heights. The 5.5 mile tour will primarily be on walking paths along with some sidewalks.

This is a group running tour that will be led by a licensed NYC sightseeing guide who is also a certified running coach. To insure no one is left behind and that all can hear the guide we will run at an easy, conversation pace. We will make periodically stops to view and discuss notable points of interest throughout the tour. You should be able to comfortably run 6 miles for this tour. The duration of the tour is approximately 1 1/2 hours. Although your guide will run with a backpack and can store small items for you such as phones or keys, we recommend bringing very little on the tour. As always, it's important to stay hydrated during a run, so please bring a small bottle of water. We will begin our tour right at the scheduled start time, however if you are running late please be sure to email or phone us no later than 15 minutes prior to the start. Travel to and from our tours is usually fastest via subway, so please bring a MetroCard.
