Free Walking tour of Sunset Park, Brooklyn next Saturday!!! (Donations are gladly accepted)


This should be a great tour and the weather should be sunny but a bit cold. Check the weather before heading out!!

Walking tour of Sunset Park
Saturday, April 13, 2013 10:00am 2.5 hours
Join some of your neighbors for a walking tour through the heart of the Sunset Park neighborhood, starting at the landmarked courthouse on 43rd St. and Fourth Ave. and ending in New York City's third Chinatown on 60th St. and Eighth Ave.
We will focus on history, architecture, development, ethnic diversity, and the potential to become a New York City landmark district. We are already listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but as yet do not have New York City landmarks designation to protect our livable and historic streetscapes.
Our tour leader is Joe Svehlak, urban historian and former resident. Donations gladly accepted for the Sunset Park Landmarks Committee.
To ask a question about the tour, or to RSVP and reserve your spotcontact us here.
