Lovecraft in Brooklyn Walking Tour
Twentieth-century horror writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft, whose persona and works are closely tied with his native Providence, RI, spent just over two years living in Brooklyn. Beset by a troubled marriage, financial difficulties, and a phobia of New York's immigrant population, Lovecraft produced only a few stories while living in the city--works reflecting his attitude toward the teeming metropolis. Lovecraft's time in Brooklyn, although difficult, proved  transformative. Upon returning to Providence, H P Lovecraft would immediately produce his most masterful and best-loved works.

This tour will trace a path from Lovecraft's high hopes at the beginning of his Brooklyn sojourn in Flatbush, to tough times in the area now known as Brooklyn Heights, and artistic renewal beyond. While Lovecraft, an avid walker and antiquarian, roamed New York City and its surroundings widely, this tour will focus specifically on his ties to Brooklyn, exploring his impressions and inspirations along the way.

The tour will take place in two sections, with a prequel in Flatbush and main section in Brooklyn Heights. Attendees can come to either section, but both are strongly recommended in order to get a full picture of Lovecraft's live while in Brooklyn. Transportation time is allowed between the sections. Admission covers both sections.

Flatbush prequel: 2:30am. Meet at Parkside and Ocean Avenue, right outside the Prospect Park Entrance. Please arrive 10 minutes early. This section will take approximately 1 hour and will cover approximately 1 mile.

Brooklyn Heights main. 4:15 pm. Meet on the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall, on the north side of the hall facing the square. This section will take approximately 1 hour and cover approximately 1 mile.
