Event description

Description

Make local connections to help inform your Industrialization unit as we hear from Brooklyn Historical Society historian, Katy Lasdow, and industry expert, Marc Levinson, about the history of our borough's waterfront both at its height and during its more recent demise. Use Greenpoint as a case study for understanding industrialization's effects on the neighborhood's residents, landscape and industries and explore lesson plan ideas and additional resources for further engagement with your students in the Brooklyn Collection's local history archive.
