The Made in Brooklyn Neighborhood Tour is an award-winning walking tour with a "Made in Brooklyn" theme. The tour blends Brooklyn's distinguished history with visits to creative people and small businesses. Visitors will get a proud native Brooklynite's perspective on what made Brooklyn so great and on what makin' it in Brooklyn means today. We'll see how innovations of the Industrial Revolution led to the birth of the City of Brooklyn and how the creativity, ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit lives on today. At each step of the way we'll travel back and forth through time from the heights of Brooklyn's Industrial Revolution to our Digital Age. From the building of the Brooklyn Bridge to the beginnings of our newest brick and mortar businesses. We'll walk past what was the decaying waterfront of the 1970s and '80s and see how it has been transformed into the creative communities of artists, artisans and makers of the present. Brooklyn is the world - join me to the center of it. See who's makin' it in Brooklyn!
My name is Dom Gervasi and I'm a native Brooklynite from Bensonhurst. I started Made in Brooklyn Tours back in 2011 after a career in high tech working for communications equipment manufacturers. Inspired by the makers I discover on my travels abroad, I make it my business to seek out who's "makin' it" right here in Brooklyn. My tours feature local artists, artisans and crafters and honor the innovators of Brooklyn's Industrial Revolution. I personally designed all Made in Brooklyn Tours and am a bonafide licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide. I'm also a supporter of the Impact Travel Alliance whose mission is to educate and advocate for sustainable tourism.
Tours begin and end in Brooklyn in the historic waterfront neighborhood of DUMBO at a point reachable by public transportation including the ferry. Detailed directions will be sent to you shortly before your tour date.
