On this members-only Untapped Cities Insiders tour, discover two mythic locations inside the historic Park Slope Armory: an abandoned shooting range underground once used by the 14th Regiment of the New York State militia, nicknamed as the ”Red Legged Devils” during the Civil War and a hidden Veterans Museum that Untapped Cities featured in the book Secret Brooklyn. The tour will be led by Tom Miskel, a Park Slope resident and veteran of the Vietnam War who has been working on the multi-room museum, which is chock full of artifacts from the many wars fought by the United States. You’ll not only be able two of the shooting ranges, but also a Victorian-era waiting room where the soldiers would wait their turn.
