This walking tour with architecture historian Matt Postal highlights often overlooked buildings in Brooklyn Heights that were mostly constructed in the 20th century – following the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge and the subsequent arrival of the IRT subway. As the sun sets across the harbor, we’ll see how the historic district gradually evolved, viewing private clubs, residential hotels and early skyscrapers, as well as handsome Art Deco buildings and a few notable examples of contextual design. In-person tours are limited to 25 attendees, last approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours, and are held outdoors. Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore recommend 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.
