Walking Tour in Brooklyn – New York City, A Native American Skyline

Native Americans traded Manhattan to Europeans for shells, but later exchanged their monumental building skills for a handsome living that took them off the reservation and to dizzying heights. Join me for this enlightening walk in the charming and rapidly changing Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn, where we will discover the history of the Kahnewake Mohawks, who once had a thriving community here. They fearlessly built the towering steel structures for NY’s most notable skyscrapers and bridges of the 20th century, but their lives were forever changed as High Steel went up in smoke…

meet in front of former Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building, 1 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, NY 11243 (across from entry to Atlantic Terminal)
