Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO (55 Water Street)
learn more about life on Brooklyn’s waterfront at different points in history through a mix and match activity in Waterfront, a new exhibition at Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO. Using a selection of images from BHS’s collection and contemporary images of Brooklyn, make history by creating original 3-D artwork. Also dress up like the women welders of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in WWII, touch and smell goods, like cochineal bugs and coffee beans, which passed through Empire Stores when it was a busy warehouse, use a Brooklyn waterfront magnet board to design your own city, film videos of yourself traveling back in time and color a Brooklyn waterfront themed postcard to mail to family & friends.
