Mark your calendars: the Jackson Heights Historic Weekend, going on since 1991, is scheduled for Saturday, June 7th. The event includes a slide lecture on the history of Jackson Heights, an exhibition of historic photos and memorabilia, and a self-guided tour of the private interior gardens of Jackson Heights co-op buildings. There should be two new gardens on this tour, for a total of about 15. On Sunday, June 8th there will be guided walking tours of the historic district. The slide lecture and the photo exhibition are free, while the garden tour and the historic district tour each cost $10. (Or it’s $15 for both tours.)
