DUMBO and Vinegar Hill
Come explore DUMBO and Vinegar Hill, once the center of Brooklyn’s industrial era and later a thriving artistic community. Our walk combines the history, architecture, people and contemporary gentrification of these lesser-known neighborhoods. Stops could include the Eskimo Pie factory, Brooklyn’s “Gracie Mansion,” historic Fulton Ferry, and sites associated with George Washington, Walt Whitman, John Roebling, Jean Nouvel and America’s oldest national chain store.
Between mid-May and early September the DUMBO & Vinegar Hill tour is one of a variety of walks offered as public “twilight” tours. Summer public “twilight” tours are lead Thursday and Friday evenings at 6 p.m. & Saturday’s at 5 p.m. We rotate a variety of tours in these time slots. Please see our Schedule page for details for specific dates and times.
