1 – Vinegar Hill

Hidden away in a tiny corner of Brooklyn is the Vinegar Hill neighborhood. Complete with cobblestone walkways, 1800’s architecture, and the Vinegar Hill House, a delicious gourmet restaurant with cuisine inspired by an earlier time, this 5-block secret spot offers and interesting glimpse at history.

2 – Rooftop Wine Tasting

Rooftop Reds is located, you guessed it, on the rooftop of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The 14,800 square foot rooftop houses 42 planters with the finest grapes, allowing several wines to be produced onsite. Rooftop Reds also offers opportunities for pop-up dining experiences, rooftop happy hours, and more.

3 – TWA Flight Center at JFK

Debuted in 1962, this iconic flight center at JFK airport was in use until 2001. The architecture and style are still in pristine condition, and the center is set to become a hotel and museum with a tentative grand opening date in 2019.

4 – Steinway Piano Factory

Some of the world’s finest pianos are made here, and the Astoria location offers guests the chance to see the process from start to finish.  This tour is best for small groups, as the max headcount that Steinway will allow is 16.
