Bushwick is on its way up, but for many New Yorkers it might still be a shady, mysterious place. It’s worth exploring on this tour if you’re interested in street art. Tickets are only $15.


5. Brooklyn Bridge

Sometimes a place you’ve been a hundred times can become a new place to explore. This tour explains the history behind the bridge’s design and architecture. Even if you cross this bridge every day, you can still learn something new about it.
