About The Event

This tour is free with voluntary donation to your guide.

Meeting location is by the Dunkin’ Donuts on 4th Avenue, across the street from the R train subway exit at 25th Street. There should be a rest room there - and also one block further north between 24th and 23rd streets you will the Tin Cup Cafe at 719 4th Avenue which has a small restroom and good coffee. Early in our tour Greenwood Cemetery has decent restrooms. Tour Description 

Sunset Park is a refreshing change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and the more well-known Brooklyn neighborhoods. Once home to the Canarsie Indians and then the Dutch in the 1600’s, the area was been settled by Italian, Irish, Polish and Scandinavians in the 1800’s and early 20th century.

Nowadays there are three distinct parts of this large neighborhood: Brooklyn's Chinatown, the vibrant Latin American community and the industrial waterfront area that features Industry City, a place of innovation where artisanal food and unique retail meets entrepreneurship.

Along our journey we’ll also see some distinctive urban housing in recently designated historic districts, views from atop Sunset Park, and a bit of the extraordinary Greenwood Cemetery (one of the inspirations for Central Park) and the final resting place of countless luminaries. We can stop at the hard to resist Baked in Brooklyn for a snack to go. It is recommended that you you bring food and water. Weather permitting we'll take an outdoor lunch break.

Note this tour entails a fair amount of walking, a good 4.5 miles with some uphill.

We’ll end our adventure at Industry City around 2:30pm where you can linger to shop, eat and explore. Among the attractions are the Food Hall, Japan Village, Sake and Rye Whiskey distilleries and Big Alice Brewery. Convenient to the D, N, and R trains at 36th Street.
