What you'll learn in this city class:

Ever wonder where New York’s secret treasure vaults for the insanely rich are? Or what the effects of a highly compressed atmosphere on a common toilet would be? 

Have you ever found yourself wondering how much fun it must have been to be a poor immigrant in 19th century America? (SPOILER ALERT– It wasn’t!) All this and much more as we walk across the 8th wonder of the world! Get ready to explore the amazing story of this bridgeas we show you the true story of the men and women who built it.

On this tour, we’ll start in the old Five Points district, walk through Manhattan’s Civic Center area, cross the Brooklyn Bridge itself and finally end in Brooklyn Heights. You’ll fall in love with the Roebling Family and come to understand why the Brooklyn Bridge is truly the 8th Wonder of the World!

The tour meets in Thomas Paine Park, at the corner of Worth and Lafayette Streets.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
