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.
