Battle of Brooklyn Interactive Tour
Lots of great stuff happening on Fifth, these days. As we mentioned yesterday, there are a lot of new businesses opening along the avenue and even more "coming soon" signs in storefront windows. Of course, our favorite playground (JJ Byrne) has been reopened and spectacularly renovated. Now, The Old Stone House has added a new feature to their website: an interactive tour of the Battle of Brooklyn!
Check out digital maps of the battle scene, listen to an audio tour narrated by Brooklyn's own John Turturro and play Battle of Brooklyn games. Install the audio tour on your iPod or smartphone, put your headphones on and you can take a walk back through time right on Fifth Avenue (just be sure to look down and watch out for the kids).
