In 2008, BHS published the Park Slope Neighborhood & Architectural History Guide, written by Francis Morrone.  We are currently working on a neighborhood guide about Fort Greene / Clinton Hill, so, stay tuned and please be in touch if there’s something BHS needs to know, someone BHS needs to interview, or you have other ideas for this forthcoming guide.

You can download a Walking Tour of Park Slope here.

And you can listen to voices from Park Slope to accompany the tour:
