A Walk Around Brooklyn (120 minutes)

The "urban safari" includes stops at Coney Island, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Junior's Restaurant, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and other celebrated landmarks.
A Walk in Greenwich Village (120 minutes)
Learn how New York City's most eclectic community emerged from — and became defined by — the renegade spirit of its inhabitants. Host David Hartman is an award-winning documentary maker and well-known television figure. He says: "People all over the world know Greenwich Village as a hotbed of political and artistic activity, but perhaps they don't know how it all came about. The story of Greenwich Village is the story of iconoclasts who refused to yield to convention. They were immigrants and educators, manufacturers and merchants, rich folks and the desperately poor.
A Walk Through Central Park (120 minutes)
David Hartman and historian Barry Lewis explore the unique history, characters, areas, and structures that define this cherished New York destination. "Central Park has always been a physical and spiritual hub of New York life," said Hartman, "and its long history is inextricably linked to that of the city. We hope this program will remind everyone who lives in, works in, and visits New York how remarkable and beautiful their city is. "
