The Bed Stuy annual house tour is coming up soon. No one is allowed to publish photos or addresses in advance, but we hear from one of our well-placed sources that one of this year’s featured properties is decked out entirely in Aesthetic Movement style from the 1870s and ’80s, and its next-door neighbor, also on the tour, is entirely modern. The 34th Annual Tour takes place Saturday, Oct. 20 from 11 am to 4 pm. Before the tour is a free homeownership workshop about how to finance the renovation or purchase of a home in Bed Stuy at 9 am. The Bed Stuy Bazaar runs from 10:30 to 3:30 pm. Tickets may be purchased in advance for $15 from Little Red Boutique, Bed-Vyne Wine or Sista’s Place. They are $20 at the door. The tour is organized by Brownstoners of Bedford Stuyvesant Inc. and starts at the Boys High School at 832 Marcy Avenue, at the Putnam Avenue entrance.
