On the 3rd Saturday of each month during Summer 2016, theMyrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership, in collaboration with the Fort Greene Park Conservancy, will host a FREE guided walking tour through the historic Wallabout neighborhood north of Myrtle Avenue.

The neighborhood, most of which is listed as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places, 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.

The 90 minute guided tour begins in Fort Greene Park, includes a 1.3-mile walk, and concludes at 99 Ryerson Street. The event is FREE, but space is limited and registration is required. Please register on eventbrite.

Special thank you to tour collaborators American Opera Projects and The Walt Whitman Project.
