Turnstile Tours offers one-of-a-kind public and private guided tours of lesser-known places and stories of New York City, built around rigorous research and in partnership with various nonprofit organizations and local businesses. We offer tours along the Brooklyn waterfront, including a range of historical and industrial tours at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, tours of the Brooklyn Army Terminal and boat tours of the military, manufacturing and ecological history of New York Harbor. We also highlight the food communities of NYC on a tour of Brooklyn's "Avenue of Puerto Rico" and Moore Street Market, as well as Manhattan-based Food Cart Tours.
In addition to developing tours, we also offer consulting services in areas related to research, accessibility, and tour development and delivery, and seek to craft a variety of public programs and exhibits.
All of our guides are engaged behind-the-scenes in ongoing research, archival and field-based, to ensure that the tours we offer are relevant, dynamic, entertaining, and thoughtful.
We are so very grateful to the many people and institutions that have made our work possible.
Eid Mubarak to our friends and partners! One of the most amazing things we get to witness every year are thousands of NYC street vendors who work over hot stoves in cramped food carts to serve us lunch, yet don't have any food or water themselves during the long, hot days of Ramadan. Fatima Khan and her family have kept this fast at their cart, Trini-Paki Boys, on the corner of 43rd St and 6th Ave in Manhattan for nearly 30 years. Learn more about the wonderful community of vendors on our Food Cart Tours, offered in support of the Street Vendor Project: http://turnstiletours.com/tours/food-carts-and-food-trucks/
