Henrik Krogius Talks About His New Book About the Creation of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade [Video]

A new book ,“The Brooklyn Heights Promenade,” by long-time Brooklyn Heights Press editor Henrik Krogius has prompted the Schneider/Junkersfeld team to produce a lively and informative video about one of New York’s major tourist destinations.

The video features Krogius and numerous images that tell the complex story of one of our neighborhood’s prize treasures.

Henrik’s thoroughly researched and illustrated book is available locally at The Women’s Exchange on Pierrepont Street and Book Court in Cobble Hill.

Watch the full video interview after the jump.

    I received this book for Christmas this year. The history is really very interesting.

    Very interesting. Great archival photos too. I didn’t realize that at first the buildings along Furman Street towered over the promenade.

    Hi! T attended the opening of the Promenade and still have a cutting from the ribbon.We played as children(how DID we survive to be adults?) on the growing infrastructure of the drive and some years later, necked on the benches of the Promenade–
    I met Ralph Branagh at a benefit a few months back and was also happy to tell him I was in the crown at the Bossert to welcome back the winning Dodger team and Johnny Podres!
    Great years! Thanks, Brooklyn!
