Spring brings the return of Brooklyn house tours, and the 58th annual Park Slope House tour is scheduled for Sunday, May 21.
Organized by the Park Slope Civic Council, the tour raises funds for the council’s grant program, which provides money towards community projects in the arts, education and civic improvement.
While the full list of houses featured on the tour isn’t available, the houses highlighted on the council’s website include a Romanesque Revival lush with original details, an Alex S. Hedman 1907 home brimming with contemporary art and a renovated 1875 Italianate with a streamlined interior.
The self-guided tour runs from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and starts at Poly Prep Lower School, at 50 Prospect Park West, where ticket holders can pick up shoe covers and an illustrated brochure to guide them along the route.
Also included in the house tour ticket price is a lecture by historian Francis Morrone at 6:00 p.m. at the Berkeley Carroll School. Tickets bought in advance are $25 and can be purchased here.
