Mysteries of Montrose Morris

Janes Walk

Led By David Cunningham, Architect

This walk will visit a series of innovative apartment buildings in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood designed by the late 19th century architect Montrose Morris. At the time Brooklyn’s residential landscape was dominated by townhouse (brownstone) developments. The new buildings introduced the French concept of apartment dwelling, which became known as “flat living.” The walk covers about 3/4 of a mile and is family friendly with activity packets for young participants.


Walk is approximately 0.75 miles on NYC sidewalks along local streets. Walk is family friendly and will include activity kits for younger participants. Start point of walk is near the Nostrand Avenue station on the C subway line. End point is the shuttle stop at Franklin Avenue.
