There are New York natives and there are Brooklyn natives—please don’t confuse the two. Norman Oder is the latter and proud of it. His New York Like a Native tours cover the borough, the fourth-largest city in America, as extensively as anyone, from his “Brooklyn 101,” which takes visitors to the heart of Brooklyn, Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park, Park Slope, and Brooklyn Heights, to the more neighborhood-specific tours like that of the Polish-populated Greenpoint and the Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish Borough Park. Tours run about 2 1/2 hours.
