Welcome to Bay Ridge signOriginally developed as a summer retreat for wealthy industrialists and later becoming an enclave for middle-class families, today's Bay Ridge was formed by changing tastes in transportation. Architectural historian, Melanie Macchio, will lead us through Bay Ridge, home to gas-lit brownstones, Victorian mansions, pre-war apartment buildings, and panoramic views of New York Harbor from four miles of park-lined shorefront. Highlights of this tour include the Narrows Botanical Gardens and Owl's Head Park, the former Bliss estate, as well as the "Revolutionary Cemetery," an 18th century family burial plot tucked into a residential block.
