Tour Historic Bay Ridge

On Saturday, October 20, the Historic Districts Council and the Bay Ridge Conservancy will co-host a tour of historic Bay Ridge, a neighborhood of fascinating architectural diversity:  vibrant commercial streets, blocks of brick and brownstone rowhouses, historic wood framed farmhouses, Victorian mansions, elegant churches, pre-war apartment buildings, and quaint hidden cul-de-sacs.

HDC and the BRC hope, by celebrating the unique architectural character of Bay Ridge, to foster a greater appreciation and enjoyment of the neighborhood that will contribute to its preservation.

Local preservationists are working to nominate some of the neighborhood's outstanding buildings to the State and National Registers of Historic Places and develop landmarking proposals.

The tour, led by Bay Ridge Conservancy founder Victoria Hofmo, will include some of the buildings the organization hopes to preserve, including Christ Church, Public School 102, “Doctor’s Row,” and the brownstone block on Senator Street.

The tour will end with an informal reception and discussion at Telecommunications High School on Fourth Avenue.

For reservations, contact HDC at 212-614-9107.
