Those who've gone on my Brooklyn Heights NORTH walking tour have seen the impressive terra-cotta-ornamented facade of this building, but now it's time to go inside!
We'll be attending a moderated discussion on the landmarked neighborhoods of Brooklyn, called "The Landmarks of New York: Now and in the Future".
Here's what the site says: "Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Bushwick, Bed-Stuy – just four of the landmark neighborhoods in the Borough of Kings. What stories do they tell about the preservation movement, and what’s next? Former Landmarks Commissioner Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel moderates a discussion with Otis Pearsall, Beverly Spatt, Simeon Bankoff followed by the opening reception of the exhibit, Landmarks of New York."
This is a FREE PROGRAM, but you must rsvp on their site. Just rsvping here isn't enough. You can do this at http://brooklynhistory.org/visitor/calendar.html
There is also our own $1 meetup fee, payable to the Meetup organizer, me.
How to meet us: We're meeting at 5:30m in the space where the talk is held, the Great Hall, for a 6pm talk; they may not seat until 5:45. Join us there or else on line waiting to get into that space. I will be holding a handwritten sign that says MEETUP.
The Brooklyn Historical Society was founded in 1863 as the Long Island Historical Society and is located in a gorgeous landmarked building in beautiful Brooklyn Heights.
