$10

Thursday, May 8, 8:30-10:00pm

Location: Prospect Heights

In this class, we'll chart the development, decline, and rebirth of the Brooklyn waterfront, from 19th century port to 21st century playground

With the dual lens of preservation and renewal, we'll examine how communities, real estate interests and the City have reshaped the waterfront from Greenpoint to Sunset Park since the 1970s.
