From the Brooklyn Heights Association:
On Thursday, July 1, as part of our Centennial Celebration, the BHA will collaborate with ISSUE Project Room for a special outdoor performance, “I Do Not Doubt I Am Limitless: Walt Whitman’s Brooklyn.” This free event will channel the psychedelic spirit of poet, journalist, humanist and Brooklynite Walt Whitman, set against the stunning waterfront backdrop on the Pier 1 Harbor View Lawn of the new Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Also as part of its centennial celebration, BHA is collaborating with noted Brooklyn resident and architectural historian Francis Morrone, who is compiling a building-by-building survey of Brooklyn Heights in order to complete Clay Lancaster’s classic Old Brooklyn Heights by including post-Civil War buildings. In conjunction with this project, the BHA has issued the following call:
We are holding an “open call” for any historic photographs (of exterior facades), old press clippings, personal histories or other archival documentation you might have in your attic, basement or scrapbook related to a specific house or building’s history. Email us a copy, scanned image, print or simply write us a letter. Email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to the Brooklyn Heights Association, 55 Pierrepont Street, Box 17 D, Brooklyn, NY 11201. Whatever you have will help document our neighborhood history as well as mark the Association’s 100th birthday.
The BHA asks that all photos and materials be submitted no later than July 2, 2010.
