12 November 2009


I'm happy to report that the first ever Lost City Walking Tour—scheduled for Nov. 22 and announced last Friday—filled up quickly. So, rather than take on more people and make the gathering less intimate, or, alternatively, turn people away, I've decided to schedule a second walking tour, for Sunday, Dec. 6, at 11 AM. The tour will be identical, a 90 minute walk covering those areas of Carroll Gardens/Red Hook/Columbia Heights Waterfront District on either side of the BQE, from roughly Hamilton to the south to Degraw at the north end.

Again, the meeting place will by the southwest corner of Henry and Sackett Streets, in front of Naidre's cafe. (The best way to get there, if you don't live in the area, is to take the F train to the Carroll Street stop. Walk north on Smith to Sackett, turn left, and walk three blocks to Henry.) And the cost is $20.

I'm going to keep it small again (about 15-20 people), so, if you're interested, please make a reservation by contacting me at lostcitybrooks@gmail.com. (Or click the "Contact Me" link to the right.) I've already taken a few reservations. Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: This tour has filled. But don't worry. I'll be scheduling more in the future. Also, I didn't schedule a tour for Sunday, Nov. 29, because it's Thanksgiving weekend. I figured no one would be around. But, I'm around, and, if enough people write me showing interest in that date, I'd be willing to schedule a tour. Let me know.
