About The Event
This heart of Brooklyn odyssey begins in Ditmas Park, a beautiful Flatbush neighborhood. We will end at the Brooklyn Museum convenient to the 2/3 subway. The museum galleries are open to 11:00pm and there will be live music, movie options and food for purchase. Link to the exhibitions that will be on during the summer:
Here's the schedule:
3:30: Join us at The Sycamore for optional social time and a drink before our walk. There's an outdoor patio. Feel free to come inside to use the restroom. There are plenty of brunch and food options nearby if you come early enough such The Farm on Adderley, Purple Yam and Mimi's Hummus.
4:00pm: We'll set out on our journey, strolling through part of Victorian Flatbush which has the city's largest concentration of large private homes, developed in the early 20th century as a "suburb in the city". We'll also see the more urban side of the area and iconic buildings including Erasmus Hall High School and the Flatbush Reformed Church.
