Last Minute Weekend Suggestions

There will be a concert of works by Johann Sebastian Bach, presented by Bach in the Heights, this Sunday, March 18, starting at 3:00 p.m. at Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church, 125 Henry Street (between Clark and Pierrepont). More details are in Alexandra Bowie’s post in Brooklyn Bugle.

The Brooklyn Historical Society offers two walking tours of Brooklyn Heights this weekend, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Learn more about your neighborhood or show it off to visiting friends or family.

The Saturday tour, which leaves from the BHS building at 128 Pierrepont Street(corner of Clinton) at 2:00 p.m. and goes to 4:00, led by Jane Cowan of the Center for Architecture Foundation, is oriented toward families with children. “Kids will learn ways of looking for clues in the built environment to uncover some of the fascinating history of this neighborhood.” The cost is $20 for a family of up to four, or $10 for BHS members or CFAF dual or family members. Additional guests accompanying a family of four or more are $5 each. Advance reservations are required, and can be made here.

The Sunday tour, co-sponsored by BHS and Big Onion, is a historical walking tour of the Heights. It leaves from the Borough Hall steps facing Cadman Plaza at 11:00 a.m. The cost is $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, full-time students, members of the Active Military and BHS members. No advance reservation is required; payment is made at the start of the tour. More details are here.
