On the 3rd Saturday from May-October, take a guided walking tour through the historic Wallabout neighborhood north of Myrtle Avenue. The 90-minute guided tour begins in Fort Greene Park, includes a 1.5-mile walk, and concludes at 99 Ryerson Street.
The neighborhood – listed 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 arrived in the early 1600’s and highlight notable residents.
