3 - Tour the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Among New York City's many tours, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Past, Present, & Future Tour led by Turnstile Tours is not to be missed. Located along Brooklyn's working waterfront with unforgettable views of the Manhattan skyline, this tour offers travelers a unique exploration of a historic naval shipyard that today is a hub for some of the nation's most cutting edge companies and eco-friendly manufacturers. This behind-the-scenes experience of New York City makes this tour one of our favorites this year, but what may have travelers sold is knowing that their ticket price is for a good cause. Turnstile Tours offers these tours in partnership with the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, a visitor center complete with exhibitions, programs, and a café, as well as a job training and placement center that connects locals with employment opportunities.
