New! Red Hook

With Zack Rhodes

[In-person tour] Once the beating heart of the shipping industry in New York, Red Hook’s streets still hold many places that speak to its maritime past. The prospect of numerous jobs led to the migration of African Americans, Italians, Portuguese, and Norwegians who made the neighborhood their own. Previously labeled by Life magazine as “the crack capital of the world”, this defiant and resourceful neighborhood has withstood economic depression and climate change to preserve its history and create a new future. This tour with Zack Rhodes will visit unique sites like the Robotic Church, longshoreman haunts, and a museum housed on a barge.

In-person tours are limited to 25 attendees and are held outdoors.  Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore recommend that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status.  Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation.  Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.

MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.
