Just south of Bedford-Stuyvesant is the beautiful neighborhood of Crown Heights. The Crown Heights North Association (CHNA), in celebration of becoming the 79th historic district in the city, will hold the inaugural Crown Heights North Walking Tour this Sunday, June 10th. The tour will highlight some of the fine architecture and beautiful blocks that caused the LPC to choose Crown Heights North for this honor.
