History of the walking tour
Event Date 23/04/2010
Location Brooklyn, New York 
Country United States 
Description The Brooklyn Historical Society, in conjunction with the Municipal Art Society, will present a program on the history of the walking tour Friday, April 23, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Titled “How the Architectural Walking Tour Built the Preservation Movement,” the event features historian and journalist Francis Morrone, who will explain how the first walking tours in the 1950s raised public awareness of Brooklyn’s historic architecture, and helped pave the way for the 1965 landmarks law.

Special attention will be paid to pioneering uses of walking tours by such architectural historians as Henry Hope Reed, Clay Lancaster and Margot Gayle. Additionally, the European background of the New York walking tour will be discussed as well as Morrone’s own experiences leading more than 1,500 walking tours.

Tickets are $10 for Municipal Arts Society and Brooklyn Historical Society members, or $15 for non-members.

Reservations are required. The Brooklyn Historical Society is at 128 Pierrepont St., corner of Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights.

Tickets may be purchased online or by calling (212) 935 2075.
