Experience four centuries of Brooklyn’s built environment with Cornell professor and urbanist Thomas J. Campanella at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Join Campanella for an unprecedented journey through the history of the beloved borough via its built environment. In his book Brooklyn: The Once and Future City, Campanella brings us from sleepy colonial settlements, to the electric playground of Coney Island, and everything built in between. At this book talk, in addition to sharing what we’ve built and what we’ve lost, this epic story highlights some of the never-realized dreams of Brooklynites through time, from abandoned plans for the world’s tallest building to failed designs to make Jamaica Bay the largest deep-water seaport on Earth. Editor at Curbed Amy Plitt joins Campanella for this urban exploration. If you are an Untapped New York Insider, you can attend this event for free! Not an Insider yet?
