Thu, Jul 7, 6:30 pm
$5/Free for BHS and G-W 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, Clinton Hill resident, filmmaker, and educator Walis Johnson, 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.”
