Summary

The opening of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883 did more than simply connect the city of New York to the city of Brooklyn. It also opened the floodgates to thousands of new homeowners and renters looking to live in "the City of Churches." Brooklyn's speculative builders and their architects welcomed them with blocks upon blocks of new housing. Part 1 of our tour focused on the styles popular before the bridge. People were tired of rows of identical brownstones, they wanted creativity and amenities. We will introduce you to the new trends in row house architecture -- it was a time of revivals: Romanesque, Renaissance, Colonial, and all their variations, as well as Queen Anne, Beaux-Arts and more. Our tour covers from 1885 to 1920, when row houses fell out of favor, cities ran out of land, and apartment buildings became the desired city dwelling.
