BHA Announces Year Long 100th Anniversary Festivities, Launches New Website

The Brooklyn Heights Association will be celebrating its centennial with a series of events in 2010, it was announced today.  Details of the celebration have been revealed on the group’s new website which launched today: ‘Celebrating a Century’ — A Yearlong Series of Events: And this year there will be more than ever happening on the BHA front. Our Celebrating a Century event series has something for everyone — beginning on January 20th with Hollywood in the Heights, a unique and comprehensive look at how the scenic neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights has been portrayed in film, hosted by Peter Hedges, Brooklyn resident and Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and novelist (Pieces of April, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, About a Boy). And check out our Centennial Events update link for more on everything on tap — from a pub crawl later in the year to historical and architectural walking tours to concerts and special events at the Brooklyn Historical Society.

The Auster Agency is working with the BHA to produce and to promote the events.

    Of all the complaining the BHA (and most residents and some commenters on this board) has/have done re: filmaking in their neighborhood, now they are celebrating it? me no get.
    Weren’t they asking people at one point not to let filmcrews/actors use their houses or businesses to hinder production,and always made a big stink about parking and audacity? Let me guess, it was Auster’s idea.

    More likely Hedges. If nothing else, the BHA embraces its celebrity residents, even if it means a little bit of backtracking. I suggest we lobby for a BHB film festival. First title up…What’s Eating Homer Fink?

    I’m looking forward to pub-crawling with Judy and the gang.
