Brooklyn Realty Tour (BRT) Saturday June 25, 2022

Save the date. Details to follow.

Before Covid, we toured by NYC Subway. Cost was 6 or 7 fares. We can do the same this year. If I end up using Abraham again, the cost would be in the $60 - $70 range. This is a shared cost. If we end up with a rental van, we'd split the cost for the daily rental. If people want, we can tour by a rental vehicle or Abraham's 24 passenger van.

June 25, 2022. Saturday. 10:00 - 10:00 pm. FYI, when we did the tour by subway, we were back in the city around 9:00pm.

Sign up below of interested.

What do you do on the BRT? Is it sightseeing, bar hopping, stuffing your face, or something so weird I can't imagine and need to see it myself?

Sightseeing and stuffing your face is accurate. When I have the time, I'll post a link to past tours. Feel free to Search BRT in this forum for more info.

Careful now, I brought my plus one in 2016 and we broke up a month later. Might have been all of you guys.

Seriously though, I'll be there and may bring my wife if I can convince her riding in a bus with a bunch of people who like airplanes for 12 hours is somehow not a punishment.

Maybe it was the breakfast buffet we had at the Hilton Newark Penn Station?

That crossed my mind, I think we’ll make it through

She’d have one person to talk about something other than airlines at least!

I'm listing myself as tentative as I will have just gotten back from a wedding in PUJ. I will do my best to find a cheap transcon. Somebody on the BRT has to talk about the virtues of Pizza from Manhattan being better.
