This five-part online lecture series will take you on a journey through the history, buildings and neighborhood stories that make up New York City — one borough at a time. In part four, native New Yorker John Kriskiewicz, an expert on architecture and city planning, takes you on an exploration of Brooklyn, the city’s most popular — and populous — borough. Brooklyn is known for more than just that iconic accent we all know and love. It’s got a pretty famous bridge, enviable brownstones, hipsters and so much history. From Brooklyn Heights to Bedford-Stuyvesant, Canarsie to Coney Island, Prospect Heights to Prospect Park, Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst to Williamsburg, Brooklyn has quite the compelling neighborhood stories and appeal.
