Forgotten NY Tour - Vinegar Hill
Sun Jul 24 2016, 12:00 pm
NOTE CHANGE OF LOCATION FOR TOUR START
When: Sunday, July 24. Fulton Ferry/Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn.
Most of Vinegar Hill consists of 19th century Federal Style and Greek Revival style homes mixed with industrial buildings.
Called a sleepy enclave that is about to awaken, the community offers both authenticity and a feeling of being on the cusp of change.
Vinegar Hill has maintained its 19th-century look while facing modernization and development from all sides.
We start at the Fulton Ferry area (a state park with Manhattan views and a restored carousel) and walk east to the heart of Vinegar Hill.
At tour’s end: Have a late brunch at one of the many eateries you pass. You can take the F train at Jay and York at tour’s end or travel back to the A or C trains.
Start Time: 12 NOON
Where: CHANGE BECAUSE OF TRACKWORK* There’s no service at the High Street station this weekend, so we’ll be instead meeting outside the York Street station, Jay and York Streets. The A, C, F trains will all be stopping there.
Length of Tour: approx. 2.5 HRS
Fee: $ 20 ($ 15 GAHS members)
