With this great 3-hour tour, we will enjoy the best of the East Side. The Brooklyn Bridge as seen from Dumbo, the trendy and hipster neighborhood of Williamsburg and some of the best views over Manhattan at Sunset from Long Island City!

What to Visit on The East Side: Dumbo, Williamsburg and LIC

We leave from Pier 11 down on Wall Street to go up the East River aboard the East River Ferry, visiting DUMBO, Brooklyn's fashionable neighborhood, where we will get great views of the Financial District and the famous Brooklyn Bridge. Later, we will proceed North to Williamsburg for a tour dedicated to the main Hipster neighborhood, the nonconformists and extravagant area of the New York which in as little as 10 years has become one of the most fashionable and alternative neighborhoods of the city and where the cost of homes has increased by 500%.

Famous for the many bars, restaurants, and clubs, with trendy young and alternative stores, Williamsburg is the center of NYC hipster life. On the way to Manhattan, we will first stop in Long Island City (LIC) with the famous Pepsi-Cola symbol to enjoy stunning views of Midtown East at Sunset. The tour ends right at the LIC park, and 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.

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 a completely abandoned neighborhood (a former manufacturing district) where only a few artists had decided to establish their lofty studios and where 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 how; we can reach Dumbo in many ways but the most glamorous way to get there is with the East River Water Taxi leaving from Pier 11 in Downtown Manhattan (Wall Street) - The ride lasts only five minutes ..... the view is incredible and will live forever in your camera! 

What we will see while crossing the East River & touring Dumbo:

  • Up-close views of the Brooklyn Bridge – We dock right by the Bridge
  • The Manhattan Bridge
  • Jane's Carousel
  • Washington Street

Over the past 15 years, Williamsburg has been rapidly transformed and continues to do so day by day to be a dynamic scene, even though Starbucks has landed here too, the area remains the District for the "Do It Yourself" and creative people. Small pastry shops and cafes to meet with friends, a multitude of restaurants to offer different cuisines, trendy shops for glamorous fashion, and art galleries for local artists. Places to go listen to some good music, and then small & big street markets .... Get informed with your guide to the latest Williamsburg’s trendy places.

Long Island City: Sunsets & Pepsi-Cola Sign

If once Long Island City (LIC) was above all a movie production center, it now houses one of the city's most vibrant art-scenes. The 19th-century industrial buildings have been transformed into galleries, museums, and painters and artists’ studios, and restaurants are growing more and more in number alongside shops and boutiques. Also, a great choice for Hotels, LIC, has opened many hotels in recent years, and we remind you that it is only 1 train stop, line 7, from Grand Central Terminal and easily accessible by Water Taxi too. Last but not least, you have some of the best views over the Manhattan skyline and the famous Pepsi-Cola symbol.
