We were all assigned to one of two walking-tour days, and we all worked in pairs. I was assigned to a group that gave tours of the following five neighborhoods in a single day:
(1) Penn Station/Herald Square
(2) West Village
(3) Williamsburg, including the hipster, Hasidic, and Latino sections
(4) Prospect Park South
(5) Brighton Beach and Coney Island
My particular assignment was to discuss two transportation links (Herald Square to the West Village by subway, and Prospect Park South to Brighton Beach by subway). In addition, I led the portion of the Brighton Beach/Coney Island tour that covered Ocean Parkway.
The next several posts cover these three topics. Enjoy!
