The Crown Heights North Association (CHNA) is sponsoring our first Annual House and Garden Tour, this Saturday, October 6th, from 12 – 5. We are celebrating the beauty and culture of our neighborhood, and our recent designation as the first new Historic District in Brooklyn in over 10 years. This inaugural year, we are showing 10 houses, 2 historic churches and one community garden. There will be a celebratory kick off at 10:30. Mayor Bloomberg, Marty Markowitz, LPC Commissioner Tierney, and local officials have been invited. We will also be thanking sponsors and committee members. Because of our new HD status, and possible appearance by the above, there will be media coverage.
