LET OUT PROFESSIONALS WALK YOU THROUGH THE GORGEOUS GARDENS AND POSH PATIOS OF LATE-VICTORIAN FLATBUSH.
For many city dwellers, outdoor space means a shared rooftop, an enclosed courtyard or a tiny balcony hovering over a noisy street. Then there’s Victorian Flatbush!
Tag along with Out Professionals to discover the joys of wrap-around porches, secluded patios, lush gardens and expansive lawns surrounding rambling homes along quiet, tree-lined streets.
In visits to six diverse gardens, experts Susannah Laskaris and Holly Noury reveal to you how their neighbors have been able to indulge such a range of garden fantasies — formal English, naturalistic, city farmlet, Japanese, Mediterranean.
Afterwards, relax with a cool drink in the garden of the three-story Victorian home of Out Professionals Members Lance Tukell and Rob Seidel.
This special summer edition of Out Professionals’ private Walking Tour/Mixer series was created and sponsored by Mary Kay Seery and Jeffery Welch of Brown Harris Stevens, Park Slope, with the support of The Loralei Bed and Breakfast.
“Green with Envy,” the walking tour and mixer, begins at 1 p.m. sharp, rain or shine. We meet in front of the Lark Cafe, 1007 Church Avenue, between Stratford Road and East 10th Street. Exit the Q train at Church Avenue near East 18th Street. Board the B35 local bus for a five-minute ride to the Lark. (Best to consult MTA Trip Planner in advance.) Post-tour refreshments about 3:30 p.m. on Argyle Road in Ditmas Park.
