In the early Nineteenth Century, Brooklyn Heights—which stands on a bluff overlooking Wall Street—began its rise to prominence; nowhere in New York City can such a variety of important church and house architecture be seen.
This tour focuses on the growth of the Heights from its origins as a Native American settlement to a booming suburb, especially after the coming of Robert Fulton’s steam-powered ferry. The tour also looks at the area’s eventual connection—both physically and politically—to Manhattan after the building of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Featured on the tour: New York City’s first protected Landmark District * Brooklyn Borough Hall (formerly City Hall) * the Brooklyn Historical Society * 19th-century residential architectural featuring a wealth of styles (including Federal, Greek Revival, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, and Romanesque) * some of the best-preserved wood-frame homes in the city * St. Ann and Holy Trinity Church * townhouse of shipping magnate Abiel Abbot Low and Mayor Seth Low * the site of George Washington’s headquarters during the Battle of Brooklyn * the Esplanade overlooking the Manhattan skyline * the BQE * Henry Ward Beecher’s Plymouth Church * the Brooklyn Bridge
