Brownstone Brooklyn

  • Brooklyn Borough Hall

Charlie Niessner will lead Jane’s Walkers through Brooklyn Heights, or “Historical Brownstone Brooklyn”, which became the first NYC landmark district in 1965. Predating Greenwich Village as a landmarked district, the “Heights” was considered the first American suburb when Robert Fulton launched his Ferry service to/from Manhattan in 1814, and now has over 600 antebellum homes and more than a dozen churches, in addition to beautiful views of Manhattan from the Brooklyn Promenade. This Walk will start and end at Borough Hall, where on Saturdays, walkers can enjoy a wonderful Greenmarket.
