In partnership with The Kew Gardens Improvement Association and the Kew Gardens Preservation Alliance, the Historic Districts Council of New York City (HDC) will host a walking tour of Kew Gardens in Queens, one of HDC’s 2023 Six to Celebrate neighborhoods.
This tour on Saturday, July 29, 2023 from 10 am to 11:30 am will shine a spotlight on the outstanding single-family homes that grace the neighborhood, as well as significant apartment complexes, religious institutions, and the iconic Lefferts Boulevard bridge lined with retail and commercial establishments.
The tour will be led by Adrienne Onofri, a New York City-based journalist specializing in travel and entertainment, and author of books such as Walking Queens: 30 Tours for Discovering the Diverse Communities, Historic Places, and Natural Treasures of New York City’s Largest Borough (Wilderness Press, 2014).
