Full description

Welcome to Flatbush, the Brooklyn neighborhood that's bursting with history! Our Flatbush Mansions and History Tour is the perfect way to experience this truly unique area. In many ways, Flatbush embodies the full history of Brooklyn. From its 17th-century Dutch colonial roots to its 19th-century residential growth, and the population boom of working-class immigrant communities in the 20th century, this neighborhood is a living time capsule.

On this tour, we'll take you through some of Flatbush's greatest treasures, including its stunning mansions, like the Japanese House. These mansions, developed at the end of the 19th-century, were the product of developers who sought to break away from the Brooklyn brownstone mold. They created beautiful, eclectic homes that still stand today as a testament to the golden age of Brooklyn architecture.

We'll also visit a private tennis club dating back to 1889, where you'll learn about the history of this unique institution and its place in Flatbush's social fabric. And we'll explore several small historic districts and mansions, where you'll get a sense of how centuries of history are preserved within a small area.

Victorian Brooklyn tour was amazing! Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging. The headsets were very helpful, and the heat packs were a nice touch. I'm definitely looking forward to doing more tours in the future.

I recently attended the Victorian Flatbush Tour and had a fantastic time. The walking tour was very interesting and luckily we had great weather for it!

I went on the Victorian Flatbush tour and it was truly amazing. Despite living in the neighborhood for 12 years, I learned more in two hours than I had in all my time here combined. Our guide Jeremy was incredibly knowledgeable about the neighborhood's history, going beyond the typical talking points to provide a truly unique and insightful experience.
