RED HOOK, BROOKLYN - Saturday, August 24th, 2013

Join Field Trip to discover the tucked away neighborhood of Red Hook, where Washington fled the British and Al Capone got his start in hard crime. Follow the footsteps of Eleanor Roosevelt, float along on the last wooden railway barge, sample locally made wine, and discover what’s under Ikea’s vast parking lot.

EAST LONDON - Saturday, August 24th, 2013

Join Field Trip in East London as we explore everything the most diverse and vibrant corner of England’s capital has to offer, from its own Little Shop of Horrors and the canal backstreets boasting street art, performance and live music to local bakehouses, flower markets, and even a pig-toting farm slap-bang in the bustle of Hackney. From Shakespeare to Banksy, mighty heels continue to pound these roads; walk with us as we follow in their footsteps.
