    Isn’t that print beautiful? Our history is America’s history. From the Revolutionary War to the Industrial Revolution, Brooklyn New York has been a major player. It is a blessing that a good portion of that history has been preserved in our streets and architecture. We should never underestimate that patrimony, or take it for granted. My ancestors were never part of the Protestant elite -far from it! But we share the history nevertheless. And it is as dear to me as to anyone.

    Iago, what an eloquent sentiment. Thank you for the reminder of our neighborhoods place in the history of the development of this great country. Although I still think Washington made a mistake by sneaking out of the Heights…he probably could never afford the rents now.
    I, for one, am eagerly looking forward to this exhibition. The Old Print Shop has an amazing collection.
