Event Details

**We have sold capacity tickets for this event. Event attendance regularly drops off, so we invite you to come the evening of the event where tickets for unclaimed seats will be sold at the door.**

Joseph Alexiou brings his enormously popular Brooklyn Brainery lecture to BHS!

The smells, the pollution, the local mafia lore... he will give you the history behind the truths and the myths. As New York's most infamous toxic waste site becomes a hip neighborhood with great restaurants and art galleries, who doesn't want to know the truth behind the canal legends? And did you know that much of the building materials that made Brownstone Brooklyn came through the canal's waters, or that it used to be home to delicious foot-long oysters?

After this course, you'll never stroll across Carroll Street Bridge the same way again!
