Wallabout Historic Walking Tour
Aug 16, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Every 3rd Saturday of the month during Summer 2014, the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership, in collaboration with the Fort Greene Park Conservancy, will host a FREE guided walking tour through Fort Greene Park and the historic Wallabout neighborhood to the north.
The neighborhood, most of which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as historic district, has a beautiful mix of pre-Civil War homes and late 19th century industrial buildings. The walk will discuss how the neighborhood has developed since the Dutch first arrived in the early 1600’s and highlight notable residents, such as Walt Whitman. Information and resources regarding Whitman are being provided by The Walt Whitman Project.
The 1 hour and 45 minute minute tour begins in Fort Greene Park, includes a 1.5 mile walk, and concludes at 99 Ryerson St. The event is free, but space is limited.
