Welcome to the Brooklyn Queens Experience blog, brought to you by the boroughs-obsessed BQE Tours team. This space is dedicated to all things Brooklyn and Queens: tourism and travel news and tidbits; borough history; profiles of local characters, business owners, and institutions; personal recollections of years past and more recent adventures; and, of course, the very best recommendations for all the best there is to do and see in the counties of Kings (aka Brooklyn) and Queens!
Content will be provided mostly by me, John Garay (aka “Johnny Noir”)—co-founder and lead guide for BQE Tours—and my lovely journalist wife and company co-founder, Elissa, but we will also post information and stories from vetted news sites, community-based friends and colleagues, and other worthwhile sources. Whatever the content, it’ll be worth your time, whether it’s informative, entertaining, or simply good for a chuckle.
Likewise, although this blog focuses primarily on BK and QNS, we may also occasionally share interesting information about Manhattan, given that we are all connected to her, our glorious sister borough; and, hey, we’re not provincial.
We hope you enjoy this Brooklyn Queens Experience,
