Crown Heights North Historic Homes Tour featuring Sue Rock Originals Studio

Its awesome when folks connect in a positive way. When Vernon Martin from the Crown Heights North Association came to our studio this Saturday he simply came down Bergen Street as a change of pace. And on this grey day he walked into an amazing creative experience.

After gaining our Ad and our interest, we were encouraged to not only have an ad in the Crown Heights North Brochure but to become a part of the Tour Schedule. He brought his co-organizer and Board Member Suzanne Spellen to see the wonderful work we have been doing at the studio!

Sue Rock Originals Everyone Design Studio will be a Refreshment Stop and Way Station for the Crown Heights North Association Historic Homes Tour being held on Saturday, October 3, 2009.

Self-guided tours will start at noon and end by 5 p.m. Attendees will have an opportunity to enter and view some of Brooklyn’s finest residential and sacred architecture. Artists’ and artisans’ homes are among the highlights this year, along with works in progress. They are also highlighting the completely renovated Children’s Museum, designed by world class architect Rafael Vignoly; two remarkable houses of worship; and the entire neighborhood of architecturally significant free standing houses, row houses, apartment buildings and churches that have been praised by the Landmarks Preservation Commission as some of the finest in New York City.

The calendaring this spring of Phase II of the Crown Heights North Historic District, by the LPC means that even more of this historic and culturally significant neighborhood will soon be protected and preserved for future generations. We welcome you on Oct. 3rd.
