Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center

Along the Shore

Along the Shore

In 2007, the National Trust for Historic Preservation declared Brooklyn’s industrial waterfront one of America’s 11 most endangered places: “…historic dockyards and factories are being demolished by developers anxious to cash in on the area’s newly hip status. For more than a century, the New York City region was one of this country’s dominant manufacturing hubs. . . . Brooklyn was the city’s industrial center with scores of maritime operations, factories, warehouses, and sugar refineries. . . . what’s left of that striking architectural and historical legacy is now at risk.” How do we preserve and celebrate the historical past in the face of inevitable change? What does it mean to preserve buildings and the physical fabric, when ways of life, work, and play have changed so drastically? Come join us Along the Shore as we explore these questions through the landmarks of Brooklyn’s industrial waterfront.
