Victorian Flatbush

Where Brooklyn’s Dutch Roots Meet the City’s Stateliest Suburbs

With Lucie Levine

From the oldest continuous site of worship in New York City, to the highest concentration of Victorian mansions in the United States, Victorian Flatbush stands out as one of the most striking, and historically rich areas in the city. As we make our way from the epicenter of Dutch settlement on Long Island, to the leafy splendor of Prospect Park South and Ditmas Park, we’ll take in a dash of rainbow shingles, a drop of Dutch Reform, and find out how this remarkable neighborhood has a direct connection to The American Revolution, the Women’s Movement, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the Golden Age of Hollywood!
