Guided Walking Tour Through Carroll Gardens





This is so cool. John Heyer, of Marty Markowitz's office and 5th generation Carroll Gardens neighbor, will be hosting a series of guided walking tours through the neighborhood. The proceeds will go directly towards the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association.
The first in the series will be on May 31st and is called "The Sacred Sites Of Carroll Gardens." It promises to be very interesting. John is not only an aide to our borough prez, but also an archivist for Sacret Hearts-St Stephen Church. In addition, he curated the " Sacred Hearts: a journey of Italian Catholics in the Borough of Curches" which ran at the Brooklyn Historical Society in the fall.
