11:00AM

Nestled between the larger neighborhoods of Flatbush and Crown Heights, the often forgotten Prospect-Lefferts Gardens has its own intriguing story to tell and streetscapes exhibiting a rich variety of architectural styles. The neighborhood is home to three small historic districts, the largest of which is the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Historic District, encompassing roughly 12 blocks. The tour will include a walk through this historic district, as well as provide an overview of the development history of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and show off its beautiful, though as-yet-unprotected areas that make the neighborhood so special. Led by historian and local resident Derrick Edwards, this tour will run approximately two hours.
