Vinegar Hill

When: Sunday, July 24. Fulton Ferry/Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn.

Most of Vinegar Hill consists of 19th century Federal Style and Greek Revival style homes mixed with industrial buildings.

Called a sleepy enclave that is about to awaken, the community offers both authenticity and a feeling of being on the cusp of change.

Vinegar Hill has maintained its 19th-century look while facing modernization and development from all sides.

We start at the Fulton Ferry area (a state park with Manhattan views and a restored carousel) and walk east to the heart of Vinegar Hill.

At tour’s end: Have a late brunch at one of the many eateries you pass. You can take the F train at Jay and York at tour’s end or travel back to the A or C trains.

Start Time: 12 NOON

Where: CHANGE BECAUSE OF TRACKWORK* There’s no service at the High Street station this weekend, so we’ll be instead meeting outside the York Street station, Jay and York Streets. The A, C, F trains will all be stopping there.

Length of Tour: approx. 2.5 HRS

Fee: $ 20 ($ 15 GAHS members)
