Exquisite Brooklyn Heights: As it Existed in the 1880s

Janes Walk

Led By Stephen Penn

I will take you on a walking tour of 1880s Brooklyn Heights. The walk will include many current buildings and sites that do not necessarily serve the same purpose that they did in 1880, but are still a vital part of the community.

This will be an easy walk. It will be wheelchair accessible. The entire walk will be about one mile. All subways stop within one or two blocks of the Courthouse. Parking is at meters or a parking lot nearby.
Location Information

RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
