Part of Intersection | Prospect Heights, a public art & dialogue project launched in Autumn 2015.
In the last decade, development pressure in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn has resulted in both the displacement of people and significant changes to the neighborhood’s built environment; similar forces are converging on other New York City communities.
Intersection | Prospect Heights presents a series of popup exhibitions, public conversations, creative walks, and “guidebooks” showing neighborhood places through the eyes of residents in the early 2000s. These neighbors first gave their tours to Gabrielle, when she asked "Where is your Prospect Heights?" Exposing change through individual stories, we seek to foster conversations on development, displacement and sustainability in this critical moment for the city.
Intersection | Prospect Heights is a project of Buscada, the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council and Brooklyn Public Library.
