Event Details

Have you ever seen a boxing match in Coney Island? A 10-acre farm in East New York? What about a herd of cattle strolling down Bedford Ave.?

No? BHS archivist John Zarrillo has been working on the records of Brooklyn’s Corporation Counsel for the past year and has unearthed a number of documents which illustrate just how much Brooklyn has changed over since the 19th century. On Thursday, June 19th, we kick off our summer Tales from the Vault! series with a peek into Brooklyn's little-known and often quirky past, followed by our first beer garden of the summer!
