We provide snacks, pre-arranged ferry tickets, rain poncho's and we even carry toe warmers during the chillier months!

I have lived in Brooklyn for over 20 yrs and have a love for exploring, I turned that passion into a business. I have traveled all over the world for hiking adventures and have taken many city walking tours. I have combined my love of hiking, wellness, Brooklyn and exploration, and created Urban Adventures NYC. I am a licensed NYC tour guide and I have in-depth knowledge of the history, current cultural events, neighborhoods, and the best places to get coffee in Brooklyn! I am constantly exploring my beloved Brooklyn. I am the only guide on the adventure at this time.
Light, healthy snack
Rain ponchos if it rains, toe warmers if it is chilly!
