Now that the fine weather is here, get
out of the gym and onto the sidewalk with Seth Kamil and Eric
Wakin’s new book, "The Big Onion Guide to Brooklyn: Ten
Historic Walking Tours" (NYU Press, $17.95).
The authors live in the borough and are the president (Kamil) and chief tour guide (Wakin) of Big Onion Walking Tours, founded in 1991.
The book satisfies your intellect and your need for fresh air as it takes you from Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights, to Coney Island, Prospect Park, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Williamsburg and Park Slope. The pocket-size guide is illustrated with over 50 photos and has maps, too.
