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.
Great detective work from the Brooklyn Navy Yard Archives time to uncover this story of an Olympic athlete who defied Hitler at the 1936 Games, and then kept up the fight as a wartime worker in the Navy Yard.
We’re so excited to be working with Urban Archive on their free NYC Trivia Night at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on February 21, hosted by our own Andrew Gustafson!
"Like" to vote your favorite photo of the Brooklyn Navy Yard from the past year! Thank you to all the wonderful photographers who joined our Seasonal Photography Tours of the Yard, and you'll be able to see them all on display shortly in BLDG 92.
