Lemony Snicket's The Composer is Dead is a murder mystery that takes place at the orchestra. The composer is dead -- and we must discover who did the wicked deed. The performance is intended to introduce young people to instruments in the orchestra through the guise of a humorous and thrilling mystery, keeping both children and adults immersed in the action. The orchestra will also perform the New York premiere of Embrace by Brooklyn composer Kenji Bunch, featuring Tracy Silverman on electric violin. Learn More

I'm so glad I went on this tour during my short visit to New York! I have seen the Brooklyn Bridge many times, but never actually walked on it--and I never would have guessed such an interesting and emotional story was behind the construction of it! Max was a very dynamic tour guide, telling stories with a lot of excitement and detail. I especially liked that he tells not only the events, but circumstances surrounding them. It really let me put myself in that moment in time. It was also very nice that he brought water us and took time to answer all of our questions. The tour was definitely "an experience," not at all just a walk with some historical facts! I highly recommend it, and am looking forward to going on more CityRover tours on my next trip to New York!

In addition to walking across one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century, the Brooklyn Bridge, we will explore two unique Brooklyn neighborhoods: D.U.M.B.O. and Brooklyn Heights. We’ll also rewind the clock and learn about the largest battle of the American Revolution to see where George Washington staged his “midnight escape.”
This tour runs about three hours, and covers about three miles on foot. Some uphill walking is required. Each participant will receive a bottle of water and a chocolate sample during the walk. Please note that the tour usually ends in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn (the tour crosses the bridge one way). Directions for the short subway ride back to Manhattan will be provided.
