Crossing Brooklyn Ferry: A Walt Whitman Walking Tour of DUMBO

15 July 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Organized by: Brooklyn Historical Society
Venue: Bargemusic
Brooklyn Bridge Park - Pier 1
Brooklyn, NY

On the heels of the Bard of Brooklyn’s 200th birthday, trace Whitman’s steps along the Brooklyn waterfront as portrayed in his visionary poem from Leaves of Grass, “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry.” We begin with a vocal incantation of the poem at Fulton Ferry Landing, followed by a tour led by Greg Trupiano and Stefan Killen, bringing to life the physical spaces of DUMBO through the literary themes of water, time, and our interconnected modern, democratic life in America. The tour concludes at BHS DUMBO, located in the Empire Stores, for a visit to the current exhibition, Waterfront.
