Join us Sunday, October 18th for the Prospect Heights House Tour!
Posted: October 1, 2009 - 9:26pm

The Prospect Heights biennial house tour will be held on Sunday, October 18th from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The self-guided tour will include 11 wonderful homes and apartments. As one of Brooklyn’s premier brownstone neighborhoods, Prospect Heights’ historical and aesthetic significance was recognized by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission on June 23rd when it created the expansive Prospect Heights Historic District. Prospect Heights was recently featured on the show “This Old House” and was commended by LPC Chairman Tierney for its “architectural integrity and diversity, scale, tree-lined streets and residential character.” From restored Victorian brownstones and limestones, to stylish new row houses and apartments, to the impressively modern “On Prospect Park” by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier, Prospect Heights is indeed an architectural smorgasbord. The tour will include all this and more and will showcase the unique character of Prospect Heights even as the imposing and controversial Atlantic Yards project proposes to make its own mark on the neighborhood.

Tickets may be purchased for $20 prior to the day of the tour at the following locations:

Advance tickets and additional information are also available by calling (718) 393-7653.
