Wooden Houses of Greenpoint Walking Tour

Wooden Houses TourSaturday, November 9th, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 a.m.

Greenpoint is more than a neighborhood of lofts, galleries, and the best pierogies in Brooklyn. It’s also home to some of our favorite wooden houses! Join Chelcey Berryhill and Elizabeth Finkelstein of the Wooden House Project for a walking tour up, down and all around the unique wooden-house filled streets in this historic area. Learn about how these hearty survivors came to be, their ties to Greenpoint’s early shipbuilding history and how they’re being rediscovered and brought back to life today.

Reservations required; meeting place will be given upon sign-up.

Tickets: $20
