Think you know the Slope? Daniel London has some secrets to share this Sunday, March 10:
When we think of Park Slope, we tend to think of brownstones, strollers, and controversies at the Co-op. But did you know that the Slope has also been home to riots, battles, a plane crash, and the Death-O-Meter? Join urban historian and licensed guide Daniel London for a two-hour stroll through Grand Army Plaza and Park Slope, and discover the stories and secrets behind its famous Victorian-era facades.
The tour will include some historical comparison images, old maps, and plenty of great stories. It starts at 1:00 p.m., meeting underneath the Soldier and Sailor’s Arch at Grand Army Plaza. The event is free, but tips are appreciated.
Incidentally, isn’t there something so unsettling about the combination of whimsy and the macabre in the phrase “Death-O-Meter”?
