The 54th annual edition of the Park Slope Civic Council House Tour, always one of our most popular events, is set for Sunday, May 19, from noon to 5 p.m. This year’s self-guided walking tour will focus on some of Park Slope’s most beautiful and interesting homes between Fourth and Ninth Streets. New York Methodist Hospital will serve as a rest stop; the Old Stone House is also participating.
Advance tickets ($20 each) can now be purchased online through NYCharities. Starting May 1, those tickets will also be available at various merchants and realtors (a full list is available on our House Tour page). Please be sure to exchange your receipt for a ticket and brochure starting at noon on Sunday, May 19, at our starting point, Saint Saviour Catholic Academy, 701 Eighth Ave. at Seventh Street.
On Tour Day, $25 tickets will be available only at Saint Saviour’s.
Ticket-holders will receive a handsome illustrated brochure describing the history and interior of each home, along with a suggested route, as well as shoe covers. Following the tour, at 5:30 p.m., local architect-historian Francis Morrone will present a lecture at the New York Methodist Hospital Dining Room (House Tour tickets are required).
