Six to Celebrate Tour- Prospect Heights Apartment House District

September 16, 2018; 2:00PM – Six to Celebrate Tour  Prospect Heights with Frances Morrone

September 16, 2:00PM                                  Prospect Heights Apartment House District

Constructed on a lost fragment of the original footprint of Prospect Park is a concentration of 82 apartment buildings dating from 1909-1929. This development, boasting a cohesive design vocabulary and scale, was intended to attract high quality construction to complement the nearby Park, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Public Library. The buildings remain exemplary for their architectural integrity and as housing stock for a diverse population. Join Francis Morrone on a tour of this unique corner of southeast Prospect Heights, as well as local advocates who are working to garner support and submit a proposal for historic district status from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Immediately following the tour, all tour participants are invited to enjoy a free reception hosted by the Cultural Row Block Association (CuRBA).
