About the event:
One of the weirdest and most glorious museums this weird and glorious city has ever seen”, one of only two trees that have been designated as New York City landmarks, the oldest building in New York City, the hobbit doors of Dennet Place, a park with only one tree, learn how to breathe fire, swallow swords, hammer a nail into your skull and charm a snake, the oldest subway tunnel in the world, world’s smallest Torah, a secret museum built into the hallway of a Williamsburg apartment, a farm inside Domino Sugar factory site, world’s first commercial rooftop vineyard. Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, Brooklyn offers countless off-beat experiences and is home to any number of well-hidden treasures that are revealed only to residents and travelers who find their way off the beaten track. An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew Brooklyn well or would like to discover the other face of the city.
