Brooklyn Historical Society | May 8, 2017

Coming Up Today: A discussion on local landmarks and how to save abandoned city buildings, at the Brooklyn Historical Society. 6:30 p.m.:

Join us for a behind-the-scenes discussion with Margaret Streicker Porres, owner of the long-abandoned mansion at 100 Clark Street (also listed as 1 Monroe Place), and architect Tom van den Bout, to hear how they are saving this landmarked, 150-year old Brooklyn Heights building from certain demolishment. Notable preservation activist and Executive Director of Historic Districts Council Simeon Bankoff will lead the discussion and explore their long-winded path to restore what was once a stunning building just from a small selection of archival photos, unveil the challenges they faced along the way, and examine what made their efforts successful against all odds.
