Sunday July 11, 2010 / 11:00amNew York Fun Tours: The Best of Brooklyn Half-Day Food & Culture Tour
How was your experience?
Our first stop was on the lower east side,for a taste of a Yonah Shimmel kinish. The tour bus then took us across the Williamsburg Bridge for tastings and walks around the blocks in several Brooklyn neighborhoods, Williamsburg,where we saw Hasidic men in black coats and varied hats, Greenpoint, DUMBO on Water St.and Sunset Park. We dined in a good Polish restaurant, tasted Jacques Torres chocolates, ate Cuban sandwiches in the park. Our guide Isaac was enthusiastic about his subject and accommodated our food restriction. This was an enjoyable foreign trip without air travel.
