Back in our home borough, we tackle the three iconic thoroughfares that define the flow of traffic between BK and Manhattan: the Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. In between, we'll take leisurely tours of Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, and a host of lower Manhattan haunts.
The first in our series of musical walks focuses on the odes to Manhattan's streets and neighborhoods. We'll hit everywhere from the Manhattan Detention Complex to the neighborhoods Across 110th Street exploring the inspiration for some of New York's most famous songs. Acts covered include The Jim Carroll Band, Bobby Womack, Joni Mitchell, Bobby Rodriguez y La Compañia and many more.
Our Downtown walk takes us on a wild path through lower Manhattan in a quest to reach our allotted 26.2 miles daily. Going no higher than 26th Street, we rub up against every neighborhood and site to see imaginable, including the skyscrapers and antiquity of the Financial District; the food and culture of Little Italy/Chinatown; passing views of the three lower bridges; walks through both Villages and so much more.
