Event description

Description

The Brownsville Community Justice Center, a program of the the Center for Court Innovation, works to reduce crime and incarceration in central Brooklyn by investing in local youth and improving the physical landscape of the neighborhood. In addition to providing alternatives to incarceration, job and education resources, and youth development programs, Brownsville Community Justice Center is also engaged in reimagining public space in an effort to prevent crime. Its Belmont Revitalization Project seeks to transform the distressed Belmont Avenue in Brownsville into a thriving business district that is welcoming and accessible to pedestrians and the community.

James Brodick, Director of Community Development and Crime Prevention, and Deron Johnston, Project Director, for the Brownsville Community Justice Center will lead a walking tour of the neighborhood, with a focus on the work that BCJC is doing.

Admission is free, but advance reservations are required.

This program is organized as part of Spaces of Justice, a yearlong series organized by Open House New York to explore the architecture and infrastructure of New York’s justice system. Major support has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. Free admission is made possible by a grant from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
