Celebrate the Great Bridge Program, May 21

Join your faculty and staff colleagues on Wednesday, May 21 from 10:00 to 11:30 in the A632 faculty lounge for an informal program celebrating the 125th anniversary of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge. Coffee and other light refreshment will be served.

Our featured speaker is Prof. Robert Zagaroli, Chair, Architectural Technology, who will use graphics to illustrate his talk on the architecture and history of “The Great Bridge” and Brooklyn in the late 1800s. This will be followed with discussion, short readings “from the floor” (e.g. from Walt Whitman or Hart Crane), and the usual end-of-semester revelry. (Click here for the flyer).

To give us an estimate of the number who may join us, please e-mail your intention to attend to Sally-Hurrem Lazala (CUNY Office Assistant, Library Dept.) (Yes, you may attend even if you do not so register.) Whether or not you can make it, be sure and stop by the library to view the corresponding library exhibit on the Brooklyn Bridge, one of our best. So, next Wednesday, bring your colleagues along, we hope to see many of you there!
