Our loose ends tour of Brooklyn finds us up against the west side of Jamaica Bay in the communities of Bergen Beach and Mill Basin. We'll also dip down into Gerritsen Beach, which we only grazed in previous walks. We'll pass through Brooklyn College on the way up as well as parts of Flatbush we didn't get touch before.
Our final music-centric walk visits the high schools of Brooklyn's most famous female musicians. From Lena Horne to Barbra Streisand, Carole King to Lil' Kim, we see the institutions that made them - and sometimes made them leave.
Back in 2015, Heather Quinlan at Brooklyn Heights Blog stumbled upon a rather exciting map at the Brooklyn Historical society. Published in 1946 by historian James A. Kelly, it details all the Native America trails that cover the borough and their contemporary counterparts. This week we'll walk those existing routes, with a trip down Kings Highway, a walk along Shore Road, and up Division Avenue, among other paths. We'll also visit the peculiar Gravesend Square and the city's oldest cemetery.
