Photograph by Larry Racioppo, Courtesy of the Brooklyn Historical Society 

Reminisce about the Brooklyn of the 1970s and 80s with photographs from Larry Racioppo and a discussion presented by the Brooklyn Historical Society. In his new book, Brooklyn Before: Photographs, 1971-1983, Racioppo captures the gritty Brooklyn of the past. At Remembering the 70s and 80s: A Bygone Brooklyn, Racioppo and others who remember Brooklyn as it was, including novelist and New York Daily News columnist Denis Hamill and journalist Tom Robbins of the Village Voice and New York Daily News, will discuss the art of street photography and the “lost Brooklyn” with Julia Van Haaften, the founding curator of the New York Public Library’s photography collection. If you are an Untapped Cities Insider, you can attend this event for free!
