Event Details

Through Hidden Brooklyn, friends of BHS get access to unique sites that are normally closed to the general public. We launch this series with a visit to Lenny Shiller's collection of antique vehicles, housed in a huge Gowanus warehouse that was the former oven for the California Pie Company. His 60-plus cars, trucks, and motorcycles span 60 years of automotive history. Highlights include a 1929 Durant rumble-seat coupe, 1953 Packard convertible, and a 1947 International soda truck, replete with original seltzer bottles (see image above). Mr. Shiller, president of the Antique Auto Association of Brooklyn, is an incredibly engaging story teller and an old-school Brooklyn mensch.  His collection and his tales of collecting are not to be missed.
