Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Bedford Stuyvesant’s rich and storied history from the Colonial era forward makes it one of Brooklyn’s most interesting neighborhoods, with an impressive cast of characters. Anchoring that history is some of the city’s finest residential architecture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tour goers will see the works of some of Brooklyn’s finest architects; their row houses, apartment buildings, mansions, schools and churches. You’ll also learn about the history and culture of the largest African-American community in New York City, a history that is hundreds of years in the making. Central Brooklyn is the borough’s heart. Come see what makes it beat.
