When we toured Brooklyn, the highest cost ever was $60 or $70, and that was for an all day tour.

They better be giving out unlimited Nathan's and Pepsi for that price.

On the last BRT in 2019, we spent time at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. https://www.bbg.org/visit/hours We can re-visit if anyone is interested or...

We can visit the Aquarium in Coney Island > https://nyaquarium.com/shop/ticket-options or...

We can visit the Brooklyn Museum > https://www.tiqets.com/en/checkout/t...ate=2022-06-26

You can check admission fees using the above links. Some offer discounts for seniors. The Brooklyn Museum is an option if it rains, or if people want to attend a museum.
The Aquarium is not the Monterrey Bay Aquarium. It's a smaller version near The Cyclone and Coney Island Boardwalk.

The above options are on the table. We will do one of them as we make our way through one of NYC's 5 boroughs. I'm also open to whatever you might have on your hit list. I'm not married to anything.

I would like your vote on which of the above you'd like to see.

You can add in a vote for the aquarium (though the Brooklyn Museum is a close second)

I'd vote for the Brooklyn Museum, then the Botanic Garden, but then what do I know?

We'll meet in the lobby (front desk area) of the Hyatt in Grand Central Terminal. 10:00 - 10:15. If anyone wants my cell number send me a PM. We'll depart no later than 10:15 for Brooklyn. By the way, don't eat a big breakfast.

Lunch at https://www.timeoutmarket.com/newyork/ Lots of choices. They have tables set up so you can pick what you want, then we can eat together.

There are 2 votes above. Anyone else care to put their 2 cents in on Aquarium or Museum? I'm not voting. In case of bad weather, we'll do the museum.

And a +1!

Yay!!!
After BRT 1, Magic111 (dear Jim) named the tour after the famous Seinfeld episode that featured Kramer giving a tour of Manhattan in a small school bus. The Kramer Reality Tour became the Brooklyn Reality Tour. And so a name was born here on Flyertalk.

I'm going to finalize the itn early in the week. We'll be adding some new stops for 'frequent riders'. This is why KathyWdrf keeps coming back.

I vote for the Prospect Park Zoo! I probably won't make it for the full BRT but if you end up going to the zoo, I will make a point of guesting someone in

I appreciate your suggestion, but I'm not adding another potential stop. P.S. I've been to the zoo and (pardon my Brooklynese), it ain't no San Diego Zoo.

The aquarium sounds like it would be fun. I suppose it also depends on how warm the weather is on Saturday.

I've been doing research on the Aquarium. It appears that not all exhibits are open. Did anyone look at the admission prices? Not sure if anyone cares. Feel free to voice your opinion.
