Be a nosy neighbor - enjoy the Brooklyn Heights Association’s annual House and Garden Tour.

The self-guided May 10 tour will take you inside five 19th-century townhouses, including a Victorian brick house with finely carved marble mantles (pictured), from 1 pm to 5 pm.

General admission tickets are $30 and include the house tour, refreshments at Plymouth Church (and a tour of the sanctuary), while $200 patron tickets include a champagne brunch, tour of an additional house, an early start on the tour and all general admission perks.

According to BHA Executive Director Judy Stanton, the house tour proceeds are given back to the community - in the form of grants to PS 8 and to the Atlantic Avenue Master Plan process this past year - and also help pay BHA’s operating costs and programs including tree maintenance.

"We spend $10,000 a year on street tree maintenance," said Stanton. "Last year, we used the moneys donated to water and fertilize the trees, supplementing the work the Parks Department does."

The tours will be held rain or shine. For more information, call the BHA at (718) 858-9193.
