How it All Began...
Several years ago, due to overwhelming gentrification in our neighborhoods I launched a campaign in Williamsburg, Brooklyn entitled "Unite The Beards" . It was designed to unify the various demographics that were rapidly changing the face of Brooklyn . As a local I figured why not try to welcome our new neighbors and grow beyond our differences.
This campaign really allowed me to get to know some fellow Brooklynites and before long I started offering a local walking tours of my Crown Heights neighborhood. This led directly to the birth of JewishBrooklyn.nyc which offers visitors from all across the world an inside look at the people of the book. Crown Heights is a neighborhood rich with history and Jewish tradition and as people are discovering it's the one neighborhood in NYC you just can't miss. The tour is comprehensive and does not cut any corners. I look forward to welcoming you and as you can see in our JewishBrooklyn.nyc logo we are a short subway ride on the 2 or 3 train from Midtown Manhattan.
This is the Unite The Beards logo. To read more and to see what various media outlets were saying including the New York Times feel free to visit UniteTheBeards.com . Below is a video produced by VICE profiling our Crown Heights neighborhood.
The meeting point for Jewish Brooklyn walking tours is at 305 Kingston Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11213
