Bed-Stuy is a huge neighborhood, with various architecture to admire depending on which area you’re in. This Saturday, the Municipal Art Society is hosting a walking tour in one of the lesser-talked about districts: East Bed-Stuy. The tour is being led by my all-time favorite guides, Suzanne Spellen and Morgan Munsey. Their tours, which cover both architecture and history, are an absolute treat and I will be there ready to learn. Here are details from MAS:
Join tour guides Suzanne Spellen, writer and architectural historian, aka columnist “Montrose Morris” on Brownstoner.com, and Morgan Munsey, architect, historian, and expert on the architecture of Bedford Stuyvesant for a look at Bedford Stuyvesant’s Eastern District, the great architecture, and the history of the neighborhood then and now. For too many years, this part of Brooklyn has been neglected and forgotten, but no more. Cost: $30 / $20 Members
The tour is scheduled for Saturday, November 5th at 2pm. To buy tickets, go here and click through to the “Bedford Stuyvesant Eastern District” tour.
