Historic house tours 2010: Murray Hill, Mount Morris Park, and Hamilton Heights

As summer approaches, the end of the historic house tour season draws near.  But fear not!  There are still opportunities to step inside the hidden-in-plain-sight treasures of New York City's historic neighborhoods.

Explore historic Murray Hill* or head uptown to landmarked Mount Morris Park on Sunday, June 13th (more info on both here; on Murray Hill, see "NOTE" below).

Can't wait until next weekend for your chance to explore?  Join the Hamilton Heights Homeowners Association (HHHA) this weekend, June 5th and 6th, for a walking tour and house and garden tour!

First on Saturday, June 5th,
Michael Henry Adams, noted Harlem historian and author of Harlem Lost and Found, will lead a tour of historic Hamilton Heights.  Then on Sunday, June 6th, the HHHA will host its 21st Anniversary House and Garden Tour.

This area contains many architectural gems of various styles, such as Flemish, Beaux-Arts, Romanesque Revival, and Tudor among its many townhouses and churches.
