Wat je gaat doen

We will meet in Industry City where history meets modern culinary and tech culture. We will sample chocolate from Li-Lac--a New York City Chocolatier since 1923--and learn about Industry City and our upcoming bike ride through three other neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Next, we'll hook you up with bicycles from CitiBike, New York's largest bike sharing system--and go over some safety basics for cycling. We will mount our CitiBike’s and ride to The Chocolate Room in Carroll Gardens. This Brooklyn based Chocolatier opened its doors in Park Slope Brooklyn in 2005—and I was there for the opening. It’s three-layer blackout cake was famously featured in O (as in the one and only Oprah) Magazine. Next, we get on our bikes and ride to Red Hook and Raaka--the newest chocolatier in our experience. Established in 2010 this unique chocolate factory is known for its un-roasted chocolate technique. Our last ride will be from Red Hook to the Pier in DUMBO (the newest tech capital in the U.S.), where you’ll get a brief history of the fascinating neighborhood and end our day at Jacques Torres—one of the first and most famous chocolatiers in Brooklyn.

I am the founder of Local Expeditions (2015)--a tour company with a local, sustainable emphasis--and a Brooklyn resident since 2001. I am a daily cyclist in and around Brooklyn. I am a licensed New York City Tour Guide with a passion for the borough of Brooklyn. I also love chocolate and know where all of the insiders go to find the highest quality. In my former life I was a History Editor in the college publishing industry. As a result, I have learned the importance of providing a cultural historical context when I offer my tours and/or experiences. I also love to tell funny stories.

Waar je naartoe gaat

I have a personal relationship with many of the chocolatiers and they have pre-arranged samples that a walk-in customer would not have access to. As well, the bicycle routes will bring us past many off the beaten path Brooklyn sites that only a local would know.

We had a fantastic tour with Nancy! This is a great tour for anyone wanting to get to know a little of Brooklyn's streets, see its hidden treasures, and meet some of the local chocolatiers. Nancy was extremely knowledgeable about the area and its rich history. She also took time to get to know us and was great about pointing out different sites related to our interests along the tour. Highly Recommend!!

I had a great time biking around Brooklyn with Nancy. She met me at Li-Lac where we talked to the daughter of one of the chocolatiers, watched their production line and tasted some chocolate. We went on the city bikes, via Greenfale cemetery to The Chocolate Place, where we shared a piece of the chocolate cake that won Oprah’s national competition and talked to the owner. We carried on via a bean to bar chocolate shop, through interesting neighbourhoods and via a lovely park on the edge of the river, overlooking Manhattan, to DUMBO and the final chocolate shop. I had a brilliant time. Fresh air, exercise- we cycled 9.5 miles, great conversation and a fascinating tour with a local. Added to this, she bought me chocolate in every shop we went in! Wonderful.
