We had a lovely time on this tour! It was a surprise for my mother's 60th birthday, and she loved it! Alex was incredibly informative and sweet and did a great job answering our questions. We loved getting to meet some local artists and see their work in the neighborhood! Such a great experience overall. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about the rich history of an artistic and eclectic neighborhood in Brooklyn!


Takes you into the studios of fascinating women artists and hosted by someone who really knows the neighborhoods and history. The people I met along the way and in Alex's group were fascinating.
