The Mom and Pop Shop Walking Tour

There are at least 2 walking tours to choose from this Saturday. One of them, which we posted a while back, brings you to a number of independent bookstores, while another brings you to the Mom and Pop Shops of Court St.

I got this from the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association listserve:

Starting point: Court Street
Sam's Restaurant, Corner of Baltic Street

On May 2nd join guide John Heyer, as he takes us through time to explore the rich history and flavors of Carroll Gardens' Historic Mom & Pop Court Street.

The Tour will stop at Court Pastry Shop, D'Amico Coffee, Scotto Wine, Caputo Bakery, Marco Polo Restaurant, Esposito Pork Store, Marietta's, Scotto Funeral Home, Caputo's Italian Specialties, Mazzone Hardware and Hanley’s Bar.
