Description

This National Historic Landmark was originally founded in 1863 as The Long Island Historical Society. Today it acts as an archives and educational center with its sole purpose being the preservation of the history of Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Historical Society presents the following exhibitions: Brooklyn Works: '400 Years of Making a Living in Brooklyn' in celebration of the first phase of its grand reopening after four years of extensive renovations. Enter re-created environments of tenement buildings and sugar refineries, see original advertisements and artifacts from products manufactured in Brooklyn, and hear the stories of workers from enslaved Africans to modern restaurant owners. Among the most influential photographs of Lewis Hine's career are these 25 gelatin silver prints of children at work in New York City - as newsies, bootblacks, doing piecework at home, and factory laborers. Hine's photographs documenting the appalling circumstances of child labor in America from 1906 to 1916 and helped change the course of history. Brooklyn's History Museum is located on site with a large collection of related art and memorabilia.
