The annual Brooklyn Heights House and Garden Tour takes place tomorrow from 1 to 5 pm. Compared to some other tours, this one will emphasize quality over quantity. There will be five houses this year, ranging in interior style from 19th-century period design to more contemporary takes on townhouse living. One house that will be of interest to readers is 135 Joralemon (most recently discussed here) which has been painstakingly restored over the past year. To purchase tix in advance (at $30 a pop), call 718-858-9193. The tour begins in the lobby of the St. Ann’s School at 129 Pierrepont Street (at Clinton). Does anyone know what other houses are on the tour?
