Historic Images Of Brooklyn Heights From The Museum Of The City Of New York

NYC history geeks like your humble publisher always enjoyed a class trip to the Museum of the City Of New York. It has an awesomely awkward name and the exhibits and photos of olde New York took us to a world gone by.

This week, the museum’s website shines a spotlight on Brooklyn Heights. Check out all the photos here and discuss below.

    Very interesting. I was particularly intrigued by the many pictures of Brooklyn Friends School (on Schermerhorn Street) students ice skating in what appeared to be a flooded parking lot near the school. Does anybody have any further information on that?
