About The Event

This tour is free with voluntary donation.

Downtown Brooklyn has been booming with new residential development, along with the emergence of one of the city's most vibrant arts districts which includes the Brooklyn Academy of Music's venues, BRIC Arts and Theatre for a New Audience.

Arrive early when BRIC Arts opens at 11:00am as you can use the restroom and check out the art exhibits. Also check out Urban Glass next door.    

After traversing downtown, we'll explore neighboring Brooklyn Heights, which was NYC's first designated historic district and has over 500 buildings built prior to the American Civil War, and has important cultural and historic sites including the Brooklyn Historical Society and the Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims, visited by Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and was a major center of the Underground Railroad. 

Certainly one of the city's most charming neighborhoods, Brooklyn Heights features its famous Brooklyn Heights Promenade and its sweeping views of Manhattan and New York Harbor. 

The featured exhibit at BRIC Arts is "Beyond Geographies", a component of Muslims in Brooklyn, a major public art and history project of Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS). Through this exhibition, public programs, oral histories, educational curriculum, and other initiatives, Muslims in Brooklyn aims to preserve and amplify the histories and experiences of Muslims in Brooklyn.
