Use the same site report template as you’ve been using.
I’ve never been to the Brooklyn public library though I have been n the area before. The grand army plaza is a huge courtyard like area with a arch. But I don’t remember what the building looked like. I would like to go see this library to see it at least once.
As a main div. of Libraries of Brooklyn which is exactly that neighborhood that we are interested in I’m expecting more deep sources about site that we are observing. It would of be pretty hard to find deeper information about Brooklyn in Manhattan but I think it will be easier in Brooklyn division. I’m guessing the most information will be in the books. I hope they have some collection of the old pictures that we can look at for our research.
I want to find more information about currently state of the Farragut Houses as well as time right before renewal.
i have been to the Brooklyn Public library on grand army plaza before. the motives of me going there is that they are the only library that opens on Sunday. i went in there, it is a huge building with several floors and rooms for learning. i know what to expect but as far as this project, i am ready to be amazed, and find out new things.
