This event definitely had a LOT of work behind it, from the research they had done looking through old newspapers to find the events, to mapping it out, to showing slides of newspaper photos on the bus screens, they thoughtfully used a huge bus...continued

I enjoyed it and the information provided was thorough and fun. As a bit of an architecture geek, however, I would have loved to hear more about the buildings and neighborhoods we stopped at as well as the crime stories. Also, the tour...continued

Was interesting but the bus left late and stopped too long in the park.

Some of the stories were interesting, but it was a very long 4 hours. Although the tour was supposed to concentrate on older stories, we heard a lengthy account of the murder of Marvin Gaye in 1984. We also stopped by several locations where there...continued
