Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Remarkable stand-alone mansions, fine row houses, architecturally significant apartment houses and beautiful houses of worship. All of these architectural treasures can be found in Crown Heights North, one of Brooklyn’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Largely developed between 1880 and 1932, the neighborhood is a microcosm of the development of Brooklyn, a neighborhood on a par with Park Slope, Bedford Stuyvesant or Clinton Hill, for architectural excellence. Today, Crown Heights North is a diverse community with a Caribbean lilt, the hometown of Shirley Chisholm, among other important leaders, and a neighborhood on the rise. Join us in exploring Grant Square, the St. Marks District, Doctor’s Row, Brower Park and other highlights in one of Brooklyn’s largest historic districts.
