Nov 27, 2012 10:36 AM | 0 comments

Please join us tomorrow night, Wednesday November 28th, for the latest installment of our lecture series.  Brooklyn Heights Press editor Henrik Krogius discusses his book The Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Krogius' latest book takes us on an intimate look at the history and beauty of the promenade and the role it played in the ambitions of Robert Moses. 

A wine and cheese reception commences at 6:30pm, with the lecture starting at 7pm. Seating is limited to 40 people. Tickets will be given out 30 minutes before the lecture.  While you're enjoying refreshments, we welcome you to view our latest exhibition, Brooklyn Then and Now, which chronicles some of the changes in Brooklyn Heights and other Brooklyn neighborhoods, and is on view until December 7th. 

Images from the exhibit show the promenade then (1954, above) and now (2012, below).
