Walking Brooklyn, 2nd edition
Adrienne Onofri


The new second edition of the popular book Walking Brooklyn: 30 Tours Exploring Historical Legacies, Neighborhood Culture, Side Streets, and Waterways provides a unique guide to Brooklyn’s diverse communities, notable sights, and ever-evolving streetscape. Author Adrienne Onofri has crafted 30 exceptional tours showcasing the borough’s history, architecture, parks, arts venues, college campuses, places made famous by pop culture, and more.


Each chapter of Walking Brooklyn features a DIY tour route, with step-by-step directions, an area map, photographs, and public transportation information. Every tour tells the story of a neighborhood’s past, present, and future, shedding light on its buildings and landmarks, community life, ethnic heritage, cultural and retail scene, and role in Brooklyn’s renaissance. Readers will discover revitalized districts and state-of-the-art new developments; stroll along the river, bay, or ocean; visit galleries, performance spaces, and artists’ workshops; and see residences ranging from the iconic brownstones to Victorian houses to contemporary high-rises.


This fully revised and updated book now comes in color and includes places that were opened or revived since the first edition was published in 2007, such as the Kings Theatre, Barclays Center, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Prospect Park’s LeFrak Center at Lakeside, City Point, Brooklyn Bridge Park, East River State Park, and Industry City. New routes have been created in neighborhoods that have undergone significant changes, like Downtown, Dumbo, Gowanus, Red Hook, Coney Island, and Bushwick.


Walking Brooklyn is the most comprehensive guidebook available to Brooklyn, covering nearly 40 neighborhoods―from those close to Manhattan (like Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg) through Park Slope, Fort Greene, Crown Heights, and the rest of the brownstone belt and out to the neighborhoods east of Prospect Park as well as the traditional communities of southern Brooklyn such as Gravesend, Sheepshead Bay, and Gerritsen Beach. Entire walks are devoted to Prospect Park and Green-Wood Cemetery, while many other green spaces are featured on neighborhood tours. Brooklyn’s waterfront is also well-represented, including on a walk that crosses both the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.


Walking Brooklyn is the only book you need if you want to explore―or reminisce about―this historic, dynamic place that everybody’s talking about!

Walking Denver, 2nd edition
Mindy Sink


People come to Denver for the nearby mountains and spectacular natural beauty, the craft beer, the outdoor lifestyle and mild climate with abundant sunshine, but what they also discover is how walkable it is as they explore culinary treasures, history that goes from the time of the dinosaurs to the founding of the Centennial state, and unique culture of the west.

In Walking Denver, author and local Mindy Sink guides readers—whether they are first-time visitors or natives—on 32 diverse walks through the heart of the city, up into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and across the eastern plains. Find the spots where the city reaches 5,280 feet above sea level or one mile high, giving the city it’s nickname of the Mile High City; tiptoe through historic cemeteries and learn of those who shaped Denver in its early days; explore the arts in the Golden Triangle and Arts District on Santa Fe neighborhoods; plan for a half-day outing to the famed Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre and nearby Lookout Mountain Nature Center & Preserve; visit the state’s first capitol with a stroll through downtown Golden and much more.

In this new edition, the author invited her then-11 year old daughter, Sophie Seymour, to contribute “Kid Tips” to select walks that are most suitable for families. Sophie highlights the elements of these walks that will most appeal to kids—playgrounds, wildlife, and activities along the way. Not only is the whole family getting some exercise, they are learning together about history, art, architectural trivia, and what makes this place so engaging.

Whether you’re looking for a two-hour stroll or a full-day’s entertainment, grab this book, step outside…walk Denver!
