[In-person tour] Our previous Bedford Stuyvesant tours have focused on central Bed Stuy and Stuyvesant Heights. This tour highlights the great architecture and history of western Bedford Stuyvesant. On its streets you’ll find great 19th century residential architecture, the mansion of one of Brooklyn’s great retail store families, a Carnegie Library, several fine houses of worship, schools, fancy clubhouses, and even some exemplary examples of Art Deco architecture. What? In Bed Stuy? Yes, indeed! We’ll tell you about important social movements, rogues, saints and bootleggers, all of which took place on these streets. Western Bedford Stuyvesant has a bit of everything. Join Suzanne Spellen and Morgan Munsey for this new tour that we hope will become a favorite.
In-person tours are limited to 20 attendees and are held outdoors. Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore ask that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status. Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation. Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.
MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.
