Discover stunning Victorian mansions of Flatbush on a virtual tour with Untapped New York tour guide Jeremy Wilcox. Flatbush is a neighborhood that best encapsulates the full history of Brooklyn — from its 17th-century Dutch colonial history to 19th-century residential growth to a population boom of working-class immigrant communities in the 20th century. Jeremy will explore this progression and show you how centuries of history are preserved within a small area.
You will also see part of Flatbush’s greatest treasure: the subsection known collectively as Victorian Flatbush, developed at the end of the 19th-century by developers looking to break away from the Brooklyn brownstone mold. Several small historic districts, mansions, and church grounds dating back to 1654 are some of the highlights you will see on this unique tour in Central Brooklyn.
