Research Your Historic Brooklyn House



Do you live in a wood frame house, brownstone, or apartment building in Brooklyn? Ever wonder who lived there before you, or what’s hiding under that vinyl siding? Join Wooden House Project pal’s Elizabeth and Chelcey at the “Research Your Historic Brooklyn House” workshop to tackle those puzzling questions. This class welcomes renters and homeowners and anyone who wants to learn more about the space they call home. If you’re considering an exterior restoration, this class will be particularly helpful in giving you the tools to find historic photographs to present to your contractor or architect. Or if you’re unsure where to start in your research, let us help you navigate all of the resources New York City has to offer. The presentation will focus on the many digitized collections available and will discuss what is accessible through Brooklyn and Manhattan repositories.

Wednesday, April 23rd at 7:00 PM

67 West Street, Studio 612, Greenpoint, Brooklyn
