Brooklyn Pizza Walk
On my Brooklyn Pizza Walk, I will take you on a stroll through Williamsburg, Brooklyn's trendiest neighborhood, and introduce you to some of New York's most delicious slices along the way. I created a tour that combines two things: sampling pizza while getting an introduction to one of New York's most iconic boroughs: Brooklyn. You will get to sample five different types of pizza, showing you that Brooklyn has more to offer than just the classic New York slice! You will learn what makes New York pizza so special, and while we are walking through Williamsburg, I will also tell you everything you need to know about the history of pizza in New York. In total, you will sample six different kinds of pizza at five places on my Brooklyn pizza tour. My Brooklyn Pizza Tour is 100% vegetarian-friendly. ***Message me about additional dates for Summer 2022!***
Explore the Real Brooklyn
Experience the real Brooklyn with me! Many people want to visit Brooklyn but just don't know where to start. I am here to change that: I will show you five completely different sides of Brooklyn in five different neighborhoods. You will get an overview of New York City's most populous borough, and I will introduce you to Brooklyn's history, culture and people. Covering five different neighborhoods, this is the most comprehensive Brooklyn tour available. You'll get to see how diverse Brooklyn truly is when I show you classic Brooklyn brownstone architecture as well as the 'hipster' side of Brooklyn, street art and vintage shops, hidden bars, amazing Manhattan views, an Orthodox Jewish community and grand historic homes. To be able to show you as much of this giant borough as possible, we are using the subway three times on the tour, but this will give you time to sit down and take a break in between exploring the various neighborhoods on foot. See "Where we'll be" for the neighborhoods we're visiting on the tour. Other things to note -If you book a private tour, I am able to accommodate specific requests for neighborhoods / sights to include. -Bring a valid MTA subway ticket (ideally a weekly card with unlimited rides) and wear comfortable shoes.

Contrasts Of Brooklyn
I will show you the contrasts of one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods: Williamsburg. What used to be a blue-collar industrial neighborhood has transformed into a lively, artsy area packed with restaurants, trendy shops and bars. There are two vastly different sides to Williamsburg: the cool, hipster part that has made the neighborhood a “must go” place for anyone visiting New York City, and the Orthodox Jewish community, which is a stark contrast to the young and fashionable part of Williamsburg. During this 3-hr tour, I will introduce you to both sides of this diverse neighborhood. I will show you some of the best spots to shop, eat and drink in Williamsburg (with a focus on small, locally owned businesses), some of the most striking murals and street art, and show you one of the best Manhattan skyline views. You will get to know the best independent boutiques in Williamsburg, vintage shops, the best places to grab a coffee, and you’ll know where to grab a slice of a classic New York pizza. After an introduction to Brooklyn and learning about Williamsburg’s history, we’ll move on to the lesser-known side of this neighborhood: the Hasidic Jewish community. You will learn about one the largest Orthodox Jewish communities in the world, gain a better understanding of this deeply religious group, and get an insight on the unique traditions and customs of Hasidic Jews.
