Brooklyn Heights — NYC’s first historic district

Sign Up for the undefined Newsletter

Brooklyn Heights became New York City’s first historic district, as chronicled in the video “Brooklyn Is My Neighborhood: The Story of New York’s First Historic District” shown on Brooklyn Heights Blog. The video was a prelude to an article, “Battling for Brooklyn Heights/ 1958-1965,” by one of the video’s producers, Martin Schneider. The article was originally published in serial form by the Brooklyn Heights Press in 1993. Schneider has since updated the article, with an introduction by New York preservationist and author Anthony Wood, and it will be available soon as an illustrated book.
