From our pals at the Brooklyn Heights Association comes word that this year's annual House Tour will take place on Saturday May 10, 2008:
Brooklyn Heights Association: This go-at-your-own-pace, self-guided tour, for the benefit of the Brooklyn Heights Association, allows visitors a rare opportunity to experience the grandeur of private homes in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. Five townhouse interiors, exhibiting both 19th century and contemporary architectural styles, will be open to the public for the afternoon.
The Brooklyn Landmarks House and Garden Tour takes place, rain or shine, from 1 PM to 5PM. Included in the ticket price is a delightful repast of pastries and tea served in the garden of the Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims on Orange Street from 3-5 PM (or moved indoors in inclement weather). Docent-led tours of the historic church sanctuary are given at 3:30 and 4:30 PM.
Tickets are $30 per person and tax deductible. The tour begins when you pick up your ticket at the St.Ann's School Lobby, 129 Pierrepont Street (on the corner of Clinton Street). All reservations will be held there at the door on May 10th. We'll also be selling tickets on tour day starting at 12:30 until 4 PM.
