BHS Discussion: Invention of Brownstone Brooklyn

Thursday, July 7, 6:30 pm

$5/Free for BHS Members

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, and New York Times columnist Ginia Bellafante
