Free Talk on Bedford Stuyvesant Architecture Monday, November 7, 2011

Monday, November 7, 6:00pm
Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

Presenters: Suzanne Spellen, columnists and Morgan Munsey, from

The Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood contains an astonishing number of architecturally, historically and culturally significant structures, including rowhouses, mansions, religious buildings, and schools dating from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Although there are currently two designated historic districts in the area, the vast majority of Bedford Stuyvesant’s architectural splendor is unprotected. The recently-formed Bedford Stuyvesant Society for Historic Preservation, a coalition of concerned neighborhood block associations, and the landmarks committee of Brooklyn Community Board 3 are working to correct that and will be on hand to answer questions about their campaign.
