Qué harás

We will meet at the Brooklyn Bridge's Manhattan tower. I'll briefly introduce myself and explain how I wound up sharing my family's stories before I launch into this unique, dinner table-learned version of the bridge's history. As we explore the bridge's nooks and crannies, I will share little known family lore and historic items. You will have the opportunity to discover and photograph these rarely seen items from the stunning vantage point of the bridge which gave them historic significance. Afterwards, we will head down to explore the unique neighborhood which surrounds the Brooklyn Bridge, and to grab a coffee/tea/soda/etc at one of my favorite local cafes (I live in this neighborhood, so I know the best cafes). There we can just relax and catch up.

I am a lifelong New Yorker and the great, great grandson of Washington and Emily Roebling, the builders of the Brooklyn Bridge. I have spent my entire life steeped in family lore and history, and so have a unique perspective on the amazing story of my family and the bridge that they built. I love to share my passion for bringing this story to life, and try to provide an immediacy to my storytelling by sharing previously untold family tales, insights and historic family artifacts which elucidate our vital connection to this past (most of these items I allow people to handle, have their picture taken with etc.). I have a long history of sharing my stories. I've spoken publicly at numerous institutions over the years, and have been featured in the New York Times, on BBC Radio, The History Channel, etc.

Unique perspective on national landmark. This had always been a bucket list of mine to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. But to have Kriss provide personal insight to the history behind the bridge and his family’s involvement was beyond expectations. Plus being able to see actual artifacts from the era gave the tour that extra bonus. Kriss is a great storyteller and showed a genuine interest in the subject. It was a pleasure to have Kriss share his insight into the bridge and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

This experience was a birthday gift. Me and my husband moved to New York around 6 months ago and I didn’t know what to expect when we met Kriss on the Bridge. It was a brilliant and fascinating experience with so much detail. The props Kriss had with him truly brought the history to life. I highly recommend this.

Kris had an amazing story to share with me. It felt like watching a mini Forest Gump as his family history had a little connections with a lot of historical figures and events. Would recommend this tour to anyone who are very interested in history and learning.

Kriss has an amazing wealth of family knowledge regarding the Brooklyn Bridge. His family folklore is entertaining and unlike any tour you would get from someone who only studied the history. Kriss had personal artifacts from his Roebling grandparents that were fascinating. Definitely take this tour!

I have a been resident of Brooklyn for over 20 years, This was truly an amazing and unique experience. Although I was familiar with some basic history of the Bridge and the Roebling family, Kriss regaled us with intimate family stories that gave insight into its early conception as well as construction. The heirlooms he shared with us... gave humanity to this iconic structure and I will never look at it the same way again. Thank you so much for sharing with us we are indebted.
