If you’re an admirer of gargoyles, the decorative, often grotesque drainage pieces that adorn many gothic, beaux arts, and art deco (see examples on 55 Pierrepont in the photo) buildings, you may wish to attend a presentation at the Brooklyn Historical Society this Tuesday evening, October 2, starting at 6:30 PM. In “New York’s Gargoyles: The Immigrants Who Made Them and the Hunters Who Saved Them” John Freemen Gill, author of the novel The Gargoyle Hunters, will tell of their history and preservation in a discussion moderated by writer and documentary filmmaker Laurie Gwen Shapiro. There are more details here.
