Today we learned about the development of downtown Brooklyn and the process and effects of urban renewal; refer to Prof. Montgomery’s Prezi if you’d like to review maps, images, or videos. In advance of our site visit on Thursday, September 10, please write one blog post of approximately 100 words in response to this prompt:
In advance of our visit to the Farragut Houses, what are your thoughts on the visit and the observation and documentation you’ll be doing? What do you feel excited or nervous about? What do you imagine you’ll discover or learn about?
Please refer to the blogging guidelines if you have questions about blogging on the OpenLab. If you have not yet responded to Prof. Montgomery’s prompt about research experiences, please do so by leaving a comment on the post.
See you all tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the corner of Hudson Avenue & Plymouth Street in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn, a 15-20 minute walk from campus [map]. Don’t forget your sketchbook/notebook, felt tip pen, soft 2B pencil, and camera (phone will be fine). Dress for the weather; rain is possible.
