“Really enjoyed touring through Kowloon, but I had already sampled many of the dishes we tried. I wished I had booked this tour nearer to the beginning of my trip-- my fault!”

Jumpstart your day in Brooklyn  on this private  tour of Industry City! Explore an off-the-beaten path neighborhood only 2 express subway stops from Manhattan, and treat yourself to some unconventional souvenir shopping, a selection of treats both sweet and savory and truly epic city skyline views! 

Your private tour begins in the bustling neighborhood of Sunset Park, Brooklyn. This area grew up around the Bush Terminal, an industrial complex that would eventually become Industry City. 

We’ll make our way over to the waterfront to present-day Industry City and discuss Bush Terminal’s role as the first intermodal manufacturing, warehousing and shipping complex in America. Bush Terminal revolutionized those industries and allowed the site to become an integral part of manufacturing in NYC for decades. 

Today, Industry City is a microcosm of various industries: the complex is home to over 450 independent businesses in a stunning industrial setting, and it truly is a place where different worlds collide. This tour will explore several of these modern-day artisans, giving you a unique opportunity to meet the makers themselves, from butchers to sake brewers, designers to woodworkers, and everything in between. 

This tour features four or five of the diverse companies that call Industry City home, and activities include sampling sweets at NYC’s oldest chocolate house, perusing luxury goods made on-premise at the complex’s very own design store, visiting artisans making anything from clothing to jewelry to furniture, and learning about the ways a whole-animal salumeria collaborates with its Industry City neighbors to produce some pretty unique condiments! 

All along the way during your private tour, you will have the opportunity to buy items either for yourself or as gifts for friends and family. Best of all, your purchases will be supporting the local NYC economy.

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
