Preservation Project Needs Your Photos

The New York Preservation Archive Project is building an online database of photos from New York City's past. Prominently featured will be Brooklyn Heights.

Gothamist: Calling All Preservation Nerds: And, yes, the Project needs your help with images of Brooklyn Heights community meetings from the early 1940s (when a failed BQE plan would have cut Brooklyn Heights in half) and the 1950s and 1960s (when citizens pushed for what would become the city's first historic landmark district); the fall of 2004 citizen effort to save the Metropolitan Opera House and Singer Building; the fight for Grand Central Station in the 1970s; and the spring of 1965 protest involving the Old Merchants House.
