New York, NY, August 18, 2010 --( Walking Tours Manhattan has added the Brooklyn Bridge Walking Tour, one of the 7 wonders of New York City, and it’s proven to be very popular choice for New York food walking tours.

This tour is different from the others; they made the start time at 5pm. It’s not too hot at that hour, and you’ll get to capture the beauty of the setting sun over the magnificent Manhattan skyline.

And to make this famous sightseeing experience even better, they added great food from Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, a thin-crust beauty from a coal-fired brick oven. Plus, gourmet ice cream for dessert from the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. The is called the Brooklyn Bridge Sunset Food Tour.

The tour begins in Lower Manhattan as we pass historic City Hall and the Mayor’s Office in City Hall Park.

The walk across the Brooklyn Bridge takes only 25 minutes, but you'll stop midway overlooking the East River, taking in the Statue of Liberty, Governor’s Island, and the Manhattan Bridge.

With boats cruising in the East River below, you’ll hear about the bridge’s illustrious beginnings over 127 years ago, and the history of the Roebling family, the bridge’s engineers.

As you approach Brooklyn you'll see the beautiful newly opened Brooklyn Bridge Park, right on the waterfront, and the spot where you'll be enjoying gourmet pizza.

Close-by is the Fulton Ferry Landing, and notice the railing around the pier, words stamped into the metal offer an excerpt from a Walt Whitman poem, “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry.”

See historic buildings that were built for manufacturing and storage in the late 1800’s that today are used for residential living and were purchased as condos.

After dinner stroll back to Manhattan with the lovely views of the skyline leading you back to the meeting place. If time is a concern for you, other faster options for returning to Manhattan are the ferry, a taxi, or a nearby train.
