The waterfront neighborhood of DUMBO in Brooklyn boasts not only amazing views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, but also a rich industrial history which survives in the brick warehouses and factory buildings that line its cobblestone streets. Many of these buildings in recent years have found new life as residential properties. On September 18th, you can join the Brooklyn Historical Society and Alloy Development to discover some of the most historic buildings in the neighborhood to learn about their past lives and modern day functions.

Starting at 168 Plymouth, a new residential development housed inside two structures that once served as storage and manufacturing spaces for Masury & Sons Paintworks in the 19th and 20th centuries, you will hear from Nalleli Guillen, a historian and Project Manager of the Revealing Long Island History Project at the Brooklyn Historical Society. After Guillen’s brief talk about the history of the neighborhood, guests will walk through 168 Plymouth to see its secret garden courtyard and some of the new residential spaces. 168 Plymouth is made up forty-six homes, a mix of townhouses, brick and timber lofts, daylight lofts and penthouses. The tour will include two more stops outside nearby Alloy properties.
