Upcoming: Churches of Cobble Hill Tour

The experts at the Municipal Art Society have marked another Cobble Hill History Tour on their upcoming calendar. While this one is different from the past CHA one led by our local historian Francis Morrone, it nonetheless sounds like an intriguing event.

The Churches of Cobble Hill: The Here, the Now, the Long Ago and the Forgotten 

Many houses of worship in Cobble Hill have undergone metamorphoses over the years. In this part of what was once known as “the City of Churches,” some houses of worship remain functioning while others remain only in form. Still more have disappeared altogether or been forgotten; some have left behind an architectural fragment. This tour with guide Mary Ann DiNapoli explores churches that are or once were in this picturesque landmarked district. Those who have been on this tour before will learn of a devastating turn of events that has occurred at one of the tour's destinations since this tour was last given. Cost: $20 / $15 Municipal Arts Society Members.
