    It is about time the crow crowed about what it took to save this neighborhood – this kind of social activism is what makes great cities also great places to live and raise children.

    Thank you for highlighting our event on your blog! There will also be a short panel on the future of historic districts, so it should be an interesting evening. If you mention this Brooklyn Heights Blog when you RSVP we will waive the $5 entry fee.

    We hope to see a good turnout from Brooklyn Heights!
