A couple weekends ago, I was graced with the presence of my dear sister and her friend. On a very foggy and gray Sunday, we attended the Brooklyn Unplugged Williamsburg Walking Tour. The tour was eclectic and felt personalized. We were a group of eight, and the tour guide took the time and care to make sure no one was left out. Jeff, our informative guide, grew up a hop and skip away in Flatbush and was well-versed in the present and past culture and stories of one of the most historic neighborhoods in America. To my surprise, almost everyone in our group lived in New York City. I recommend Brooklyn Unplugged for visitors and residents. It’s a fantastic way to get to know more about the legacy and the future plans of Brooklyn.

Jeff was incredibly knowledgeable on the street art around Williamsburg.
