How can communities fight for open space while development pressures increase in their neighborhoods?
Listen in at the Brooklyn Historical Society as experts share their experiences with green space, advocacy and development. Urban planner Damon Rich will moderate a conversation with Adrian Benepe of The Trust for Public Land, Stacy Anderson of The Tanks at Bushwick Inlet Park, Matthew Malina of NYCH2O and the Ridgewood Reservoir project, and Joseph Sanchez of Bronx River Alliance.
The program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition “The Means of a Ready Escape: Brooklyn’s Prospect Park,” which runs through March 2019. Focusing on the history of Prospect Park, the exhibition is a collaboration between BHS and the Prospect Park Alliance.
The talk will take place on Monday, February 4 at BHS at 128 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights. Doors will open at 6 p.m., and the event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for general admission and free for BHS Members. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
