Guides from Big Onion Walking Tours share the history of the great bridge and its surrounding neighborhoods. The jaunt begins on the Manhattan side, and as you cross, you’ll learn about the Roeblings, the family responsible for its construction, and the hardships involved in getting the damn thing built. You’ll then wander through Brooklyn Heights, learning about its famous residents and their connections to the bridge. Meet at the southeast corner of Broadway and Chambers St.
