Six To Celebrate: Bay Ridge Tour

Saturday, October 20

10:00 am

This tour is SOLD OUT – Thank You!


Bay Ridge’s richly varied architecture, made up of vibrant commercial districts, uniform rowhouse blocks, historic wood frame farmhouses, Victorian mansions, magnificent places of worship, pre-war apartment buildings and quaint cul-de-sacs, tells its fascinating story.  To ensure that Bay Ridge retains this rich “sense of place” for the well-being and enjoyment of future generations, local advocates and preservationists are working to nominate some of the neighborhood’s architectural and cultural gems on the State and National Registers of Historic Places and formulate proposals for landmark designations.  Join us on Saturday, October 20, as Victoria Hofmo, founder of the Bay Ridge Conservancy, leads a tour focusing on some of the neighborhood’s most pressing preservation priorities, including stops at Christ Church, Public School 102, “Doctor’s Row,” and the brownstone block on Senator Street.  The tour will conclude with an informal reception at the Telecommunications High School to continue the discussion about recent preservation efforts.

    Hi! I got your HDC notice via Justin Ferate’s great elist and attend many HDC Events and am also on their elist.

    Am interested in walk because I take many L&M Bus Tours which also picks up passengers in Bay Ridge so am curious about the area .As a member of Municipal Art Societt I do many walks because I love being able to live in New York City where I reside on the Harlem River at 147th Street..

    But I never pay anything on line. Can I mail you a check payable to?
    or phone in my credit card info?

    I am interested in this tour. Since I live in Staten Island I want to take the bus over the bridge. Will this tour be any where near the Brooklyn Bridge or will I have to get another bus or a subway?
