[In-person tour] On the edge of rapidly developing downtown Brooklyn, Fort Greene has seen more major construction in the last twenty years than most neighborhoods have experienced in the last 60 years. It seems as if every time one looks down the street, a new residential tower is rising over the brownstone blocks, and we’ve forgotten what they replaced. Our first Fort Greene tour primarily featured buildings in the two Historic Districts and Fort Greene Park. This new tour mixes the protected old with some of the avant-garde new, spanning two centuries. Residential, civic, cultural and commercial buildings, houses of worship and green spaces – all are part of Fort Greene’s storied history and its future.
