Wilderness Press :: Walking :: Walking Brooklyn, 2nd edition
Walking Brooklyn, 2nd edition
Walking Brooklyn, 2nd edition 
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!
