Field trips are an essential part of the way we learn at Brooklyn Apple.  We're out on the town at least once a week.  We've found an overwhelming bounty of experts, artists, craftspeople, professionals, and pigeon fanciers to share their experience and expertise with us.  The city is a an amazing resource and teacher.  We primarily use public transportation on our journeys.  Students at Brooklyn Apple learn to travel safely and without complaint.
