The Brooklyn Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) announced the winning neighborhood for the first ever Brooklyn Neighborhood Tourism Initiative. And the winner is…Fort Greene/Clinton Hill.
This heterogeneous community, just east of downtown Brooklyn, boasts majestic brownstones, pre-Civil War frame houses, lively shopping areas, historical churches and world-renowned cultural institutions, and will now feature a series of walking tours to present these treasures to visitors.
The Historic Fort Greene Walking Tour will be held regularly, with the first tour held June 21 at 1 p.m. The tour will meet at the southeast corner of Flatbush Avenue & Hanson Place, under the large red BAM sign.
