On this private Manhattan and Brooklyn tour, I first take you to the sights people most often associate with New York, ie - the Empire State Building, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, etc.  After the "sights," I take you to the "soul" of New York - "the real New York" in Brooklyn.  I take you into the neighboods, each with its own character, personality and subculture. It is a great overview, helping you to learn "the lay of the land" and determine where you want to go back to and spend more time, during the rest of your stay.
