What to Visit on The East Side: Brooklyn Heights - Dumbo - LIC

We will meet in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, one of the most historic neighborhoods in the city, where we'll start our tour discovering its famous tree-lines streets, elegant brownstones, and the popular promenade park. We will walk along the famous promenade to admire the beautifu bay of New York and take in the Downtown Skyline.

We will continue our tour by visiting DUMBO, Brooklyn's fashionable neighborhood, where we will get great views of the Financial District and the famous Manhattan Bridge with the Empire State Building framed right in the middle of the lower arch.

Then, it's time to hop on the water taxi which we will ride all the way to Long Island City (LIC) - The water taxi ride will give us some front-row views to the Manhattan and Brooklyn skyline as we cruise up the East River. In Long Island City, we will see the famous Pepsi-Cola symbol and we can enjoy stunning views of Midtown East at Sunset. The tour ends right at the LIC park.

You can either ride the Water Taxi back to Wall Street or Midtown East (34th Street Pier) or you can hop on the Subway, Line 7, that will take you to Grand Central and Times Square. The tour ends in Long Island City.

Additional Description


Let's start by saying that Dumbo has nothing to do with the young Disney elephant but is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Until a few decades ago, it was an abandoned neighborhood, a former manufacturing district, where a handful of artists had decided to establish their lofty studios, and 30 years ago Sergio Leone filmed one of the most beautiful scenes of the movie "Once upon a time in America." Now, Dumbo has changed and we're going to see just how much it has changed during the Tour. As we are touring Dumbo, we will visit some of its most iconic attractions including the new-ish Time Out Market Terrace for incredible views of the waterfront.

Some of the views include –
  • Up-close views of the Brooklyn Bridge
  • The Manhattan Bridge
  • Jane's Carousel
  • Washington Street
To move north up the East Rider towards our next stop, we will use one of the NYC Ferries, by far one of the best ways to get around town while enjoying the view. The ride will last probably 15 to 20 minutes tops but the view is incredible and will forever live in your camera!

Long Island City - Sunsets & Pepsi-Cola Sign

If Long Island City (LIC) once was above all the center of the NYC-based Entertainment Industry housing major movie & tv productions, it has become one of New York's most vibrant and modern residential neighborhoods. The 19th-century industrial buildings have been transformed into galleries, museums, artists’ studios and restaurants are growing more and more in number alongside shops and boutiques. The waterfront has been transformed into a collection of ultra-chic glass sky-rises offering a plethora of luxury amenities from rooftop pools and gyms to libraries, clubs, and nurseries only accessible by its residents. LIC might also be a great choice for Hotels since many open in recent years, and with only one train stop, line 7, away from Grand Central Terminal and Water Taxi, this area has become increasingly accessible even to visitors. Last but not least, you have some of the best views over the Manhattan skyline and the famous Pepsi-Cola sign.

NOTES: Water Taxi tickets are not included in the price. The cost for each ride is $4. During the tour, we will take at least 1 rides for a total of $4 per person – If you want to return to Manhattan by water taxi at the end of the tour, you will need an additional ticket for $4

If you are passionate about photos and videos you will have unique opportunities to capture the skyline at sunset immortalizing the views of the three bridges of the East River: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg (aka BMW,) and everything your guide will bring to your attention.
