Brooklyn & Manhattan - Turnstile Tours


Turnstile Tours introduces visitors to experiences that focus on how the city works – from manufacturing and infrastructure, to food systems and public parks  – and the stories of ordinary people, past and present, who have made the city what it is today.

Turnstile Tours is a social enterprise that researches, develops and offers a range of in-depth and interactive tour experiences in Brooklyn. Including tours that explore history, architecture, and nature at the iconic Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and the Brooklyn Army Terminal, the latter being former military sites that are today centers of industry, manufacturing, and technology.

As you taste your way through these neighborhoods – including Midtown and the Financial District – you'll get a behind-the-scenes perspective on successful food business, including food trucks, food carts, pop-ups, and market vendors.

What if the weather is bad the day of the tour?
All of our tours operate rain, shine, or snow, so please dress appropriately.

If the weather or other circumstances should make the tour unsafe, we will contact the participants directly to reschedule.
