On Thursday evening, March 1, from 6:00 to 7:00, the Brooklyn Women’s Exchange, 55 Pierrepont Street (between Henry and Hicks and now, unfortunately under scaffolding that obscures the view of Wendy’s windows) will present Brooklyn Heights Press editor and local historian Henrik Krogius discussing his new book, The Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which tells the story of how the amenity we all enjoy came to be, and how it has been used through the years. The event is free.
The Exchange is also hosting “Craft Sundays” from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on March 4, April 1, May 6, and June 3.
Please join us with your little ones on the first Sunday of every month as we share the spirit of crafting with a fun and inspiring project. During the holiday season we do Craft Sundays every week. Depending on the season, we’ve sewn dolls, fashioned unusual valentines, used cloves and fruit for pomander ornaments and made wooden spoon figures. Ages 3 and up are welcome with parents or caregivers.
A $5.00 materials fee is suggested for Craft Sundays.
