The Park Slope Civic Council hosts a self-guided walking tour, "Grand Central," featuring nine 19th- and early 20th-century homes, on May 18 from noon to 5 pm.

This 44th annual walking tour is a fundraiser for the civic council, which returns the funds to the community through scholarships to college-bound students and grants to schools, charities, cultural institutions and other organizations benefiting Park Slope.

Day-of-tour tickets and T-shirts are available outside Dizzy’s restaurant, on the corner of Eighth Avenue and Ninth Street. Ticket holders may also visit the Brooklyn Jewish Art Gallery, newly opened in Congregation B’nai Jacob, and All Saints Episcopal Church. Built in 1892, the church is a blend of Moorish design and Romanesque architecture.

A highlight of the tour is a look inside Bed and Breakfast on the Park (pictured), an 1896 Neo-Renaissance bed-and-breakfast with stained-glass windows, gas burning fireplaces, canopy beds and Victorian furnishings.

Tickets are $20. For more information, call (718) 832-8227 or visit the Web site at The tour will be offered rain or shine. Children younger than 10, photographs and video cameras are not permitted inside the homes.
