400 Years of Flatbush

With Zack Rhodes

[In-person tour] From a rural village to a flourishing, diverse neighborhood, Flatbush is both centrally located in Brooklyn and is central to the borough’s culture. On this tour with Zack Rhodes, we’ll see why this once pastoral area quickly became a real estate developer’s dream. This tour will follow the neighborhood’s history beginning with the first settlers and their role in the Revolutionary War and ending with the Parade Grounds. We’ll also visit some of the neighborhood’s most famous landmarks including Kings Theatre, the Albemarle-Kenmore Terraces, and the area’s first public school where many starlets and star athletes were educated.

For all tours, there are no refunds, cancellations, or exchanges unless we cancel a tour. Online registration closes one hour prior to the tour start time.
