Event Description: Join Local Expeditions founder, Nancy Blaine, as she walks you through Grand Army Plaza and the glorious entrance of Prospect Park. Learn about Olmstead and Vaux and what they thought about the Prospect Park project in comparison to their earlier masterpiece Central Park. After the park, stroll through the North Slope and learn its geography, its architecture, some history and some local lore. A refreshment stop on Fifth Avenue will provide a welcome rest and a well-deserved afternoon sweet. Follow Fifth back to Union where you will learn about the most famous institution in Park Slope–the oldest worker owned food coop in the United States.
