Canceled: South Williamsburg

Old and New in Brooklyn

With Zack Rhodes

Please note — In response to concerns about coronavirus, the Municipal Art Society has made the difficult decision to cancel this tour.

Despite its humble beginnings as Brooklyn’s northernmost village, Williamsburg is now known for its vibrant food, music, and art scene. On this tour we’ll explore South Williamsburg, formerly known as the First Ward, to learn about its impact on the cultural fabric of New York City and the many ethnic and religious immigrant groups who call this area home, and we’ll visit famous sites including the Fillmore Historic District, Peter Luger Steakhouse, and the Williamsburg Trust building.

Sunday, April 26
11:00 AM — 1:00 PM
