Recently landmarked, the Wallabout Historic District contains one of largest concentrations of intact pre-Civil War wood-frame rowhouses in the entire city! Come take a stroll with Chelcey Berryhill and Elizabeth Finkelstein of the Wooden House Project as we explore the neighborhood's fascinating early roots and address some of the challenges to preserving these rare historic structures. Along the way, we'll visit the former home of poet Walt Whitman and discuss the Brooklyn Navy Yard's role in the development of modern-day Wallabout.
