What you'll do

The tour begins in my Victorian parlor inside the landmark (and haunted) Flat Iron Arts Building. From there, our small group (no more than a handful of people) will explore Beer Baron's Row, the bustling "Polish Downtown" shopping district, and the park from which the neighborhood takes its name. We'll make over 15 stops on our one mile tour, all with a special emphasis on forgotten history, strange mysteries, and ghost stories.
