bike tours

Brooklyn’s art, culture, and creativity has been part of the global zeitgeist for years. But what really happens here, in that industrial Gowanus warehouse or quirky Park Slope storefront or cavernous Red Hook factory?

oriana-jonah-smallIf you’re interested in the artists behind the art and the craftspeople behind the craft, we’d love to show you what goes on in your own backyard. Come on a Brooklyn Spaces Bike Tour and visit more than a half-dozen unique shops, museums, and experimental spaces, with private talks, demos, and discounts at each. Along the way, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the history of these buildings, the realities of the people who keep them alive, and the future of those trends the New York Times loves to “discover.” Don’t worry, we’ll also feed you: there will be a waterfront snack break by Trough Catering midway through.

Tour stops may include:


You’ll be led around by two folks who really love Brooklyn: Oriana, creatrix of Brooklyn Spaces; and Jonah, tour-guide progeny and native New Yorker. Come join us!

Tickets includes access to all venues and snack break. BYO bike and lock.
