GL Pre-Year Ender: Brooklyn Bridge Walk into 2009

December 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Brooklyn Bridge Walk into the New Year! Dr. Phil’s New York Talks and Walks is presenting guided tours of the City Hall area and across the Brooklyn Bridge. Multiple walks will start tonight between 10:15 PM and 11:15 PM and ending at midnight.

NYC’s best tour guides will lead you around the City Hall area and the Brooklyn Bridge to learn little known facts about the 19th century’s greatest technical marvel. Free prizes — tee-shirts, postcards and other gifts included that show up whether you prepay by credit card or pay cash on the spot.> Party and play on the Brooklyn Bridge. Enjoy free refreshments for the early birds! – snacks and hot apple pie — tea, or hot chocolate and upon request hot coffee. If history repeats itself, fireworks will be visible from Central Park, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and New Jersey as well as the Empire State Building light show.

Meeting Place is Popeye’s Chicken, 143 Fulton Street between Nassau Street and Broadway on top of the Fulton Street subway station. The cross street is Fulton. You can register on-site starting at 9:45 PM. Cost: $60 cash; $50 credit card. Telephone (888) 699-2550 to speak to a live person or go-on-line NYCwalks.com. Note: I don’t believe Dr. Phil will actually be in attendance. Which is a shame, I have a lot of 2008 kvetching to do.

    Do not go on this tour. We went last year, received a cheapo ‘I heart NY’ t-shirt, drank Popeye’s coffee, schlepped around lower Manhattan with tourists, and went to the Brooklyn Bridge where we could hear, but not see fireworks. On the bright side, 2008 got better immediately.

    happy new year
