I'm taking a brief break from my California Dreamin' to forward along this post from Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti about the "Slice of Brooklyn" one hour special airing tomorrow night (March 7th) on The Travel Channel. If you can, watch it (check your listings). If you're in NYC, go on the tour!
Hubs and I went on this tour back in Spring 2010 after reading about it online on a travel site, and we are so glad we did. It was one of our favorite excursions, we highly recommend it. Aside from eating two different kinds of pizza (thin crust and thick crust) at two pizza locations, the tour takes you to various sights in Brooklyn - most sights we would have never seen on our own (including Coney Island). The tour starts and ends in Manhattan in Union Square, and the photo opportunities were among the best we had on that trip!
Our tour guide was Paula and she was fantastic. Super-informative and fun to be around, she has the zest for Brooklyn!
