From Bay Ridge to Bushwick, today neighborhoods on the cusp
of gentrification display obvious signs of transformation and tension,
but what about areas that were the first to make up the "new"
Brooklyn, like Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, and Prospect Heights?
What is their narrative and what challenges do they face today?
Join Jarrett Murphy, Executive Publisher of City Limits, as he
moderates a discussion with thought leaders including historian
Suleiman Osman, author of The Invention of Brownstone Brooklyn:
Gentrification and the Search for Authenticity in Postwar New York,
New York Times columnist Ginia Bellafante, and Sandy Hornick,
longtime Park Slope homeowner and formerly of the NYC Department
of City Planning.
Offered in partnership with "Celebrating the City: Jane Jacobs at 100."
