Carroll Gardens

With Zack Rhodes

[In-person] Spanning just 40 blocks, Carroll Gardens was originally considered part of Red Hook until real estate developers renamed the area in the 1960s. Today the neighborhood retains much of its character from its days as a refuge for Italian and Norwegian immigrants, while growing deep roots as a community for French expats. On this tour with Zack Rhodes, we’ll visit important sites that are emblematic of the neighborhood’s character, from wide gardens and Hobbit doors, to the social clubs and bakeries that tell the story of its residents. We’ll even visit a famed mobster’s wedding venue.

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.
