History & Future of Brooklyn's First Apartment House District

  • Central Public Library 10 Grand Army Plaza Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

Francis Morrone, a noted architectural historian, will discuss Brooklyn’s first experiment in “modern” apartment house living at the turn of the 20th century. Hear about the architects who helped realize this new vision at the nexus of the borough’s iconic public spaces, its premier cultural institutions, and its growing subway network.

Simeon Bankoff of the Historic Districts Council will explain how designating the Prospect Heights Apartment House District as a New York City landmark will help to protect its buildings, and preserve them for future generations of residents and visitors to enjoy
