Finding Their Architectural Roots: Cracking the Mystery of One of Brooklyn’s Most Prolific and Distinguished Architectural Firms

Gregory Dietrich, Gregory Dietrich Preservation Consulting,

Presented in Partnership with the New York Landmarks Conservancy

Gregory Dietrich, architectural historian, will describe the work of the Parfitt Brothers, three English brothers who designed some of Brooklyn’s most distinctive buildings from Bensonhurst to Brooklyn Heights. Seeking to unlock the mystery of their past, Mr. Dietrich will talk about his quest to uncover the brothers’ origins, from their humble beginnings in England, to their early years in Brooklyn and the subsequent opening of the practice that led to their renown. The company evolved into one of the borough’s leading architecture firms of its day during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, designing a range of buildings in a wide variety of styles.
