To that end, Untapped Cities’ founders, Michelle Young and Augustin Pasquet, have spent a year gathering 125 mysterious and legendary locations in Brooklyn for their newest book, Secret Brooklyn: An Unusual Guide. Join them on Wednesday, December 20 for a conversation at the New York Public Library as they delve into the borough’s hidden treasures, and talk about the power of urban discover.

A historic building that has been around for over 100 years, it not only holds information about the city’s history and secrets, but has been a part of the city’s developing history, built on the remnants of the old Croton Reservoir. Join us that this storied location that gathers all the world’s secrets and insights for a chance to learn not only more about Brooklyn’s secrets, but what it means to uncover and report New York City at Untapped Cities.
